USDA Offers Grants for Organic Agriculture

At AgriEnergy Resources we pride ourselves in being a leader within the biological/organic farming community. With great leadership, comes great mentorship. We’re always looking for opportunities where our customers can benefit. Whether it’s a list of transitional buyers here, organic buyers there, or product giveaways/discounts at our seminars, we always have your best interest at heart.

Weather Pic

We test a variety of product combinations, new products, and more on our summer research plots. Here, a few of our agronomists are comparing soybean roots this past summer.

In fact, we came across this exciting funding opportunity from the USDA. With the continued demand for organics, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) is offering up to $3.8M in funding to support research, education, and extension for both new and existing organic farmers and ranchers.

Research areas include documenting and understanding the effects of organic practices such as crop rotation, livestock-crop integration, organic manure, mulch/compost additions, cover crops, and reduced or conservation tillage on ecosystem services, greenhouse gas mitigation, and biodiversity.

If this is something that interests you, click here for more information. Applications are due March 9.

If you do end up receiving a grant, keep us in mind. Every year, we conduct a variety of research trials.

Good luck!

Turning White Sand Black

I can’t believe we’re through our 2017 Winter “Plot” Tour! Seven seminars in seven states makes for one crazy, but fun winter. I think it’s safe to say we’ve heard from so many astounding speakers and farmers.

josh-boanWhen one speaker starts out saying, “We could fertilize our fields with y’alls soil. The ground I farm starts out as pretty much white beach sand.” You know it’s going to be a good presentation. Especially when that white beach sand turns black due to a program that includes our Residuce® and SP-1™.

If you were at our Princeton seminar then you heard how Josh Boan (pictured) used a strong biological nutrient package to improve soil health in his perennial peanut operation in north Florida.

If not, our friend Jerry Carlson, of Renewable Farming LLC, has the whole story here. Or you can listen to Josh, or any of the other Princeton speakers, on our podcast here.

Check it out!
