Recent grant awards were made to state agriculture departments in the latest efforts to build upon a network designed to aid ag producers dealing with stress. Brent Elrod, with the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), provides examples of state-led projects that were recently awarded grants under NIFA’s Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network. And one of those is right here in the Southeast.

Elrod talks about the grants they awarded that fund projects within state departments of agriculture.
