Warner Grant 2009 - Call for Proposals

The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) Sustainable Agriculture Team and the Agroecosystems Management Program (AMP) are offering interdisciplinary grants to promote on-farm research in sustainable agriculture. This program is made available through the Paul C. and Edna H. Warner Endowment Fund established specifically for on-farm research in sustainable agriculture related to crop (agronomic and horticultural) and animal production systems, that are ultimately intended for human consumption. 

Sustainable agriculture is characterized by a state of balance between:

·      Practices and values that promote environmental stewardship and conservation of resources

·      Long-term economic viability of farms and rural communities, and

·      Preservation of the quality of life for farm families and support for rural communities.

Research is intended to identify and publicize sustainable agricultural practices and systems that are profitable, socially responsible, energy efficient and improve water quality and other environmental concerns relevant to Ohio farmers.  The grant program is a unique opportunity for collaboration between OSU staff and extension with an on-farm research project.   Applications will be accepted up to February 28, 2009 and awards will be announced prior to March 31, 2009.
