Florida Gulf Coast University Board of Trustees     |     FL     |     2022
The investigators' overarching goal is to develop models of precision agriculture that utilize sustainable closed loop water-energy-food systems. These systems use waste bioreactors, aquaponics, and agrivoltaics combined with sensors-based real-time monitoring to improve agricultural productivity while also reducing its environmental impacts.
Women, Food and Agriculture Network (WFAN)     |     IL, IA, KS, MN, NE, ND, SD, WI     |     2021
Identify and address the conservation practice implementation barriers faced by Women Farmland Owners (WFOs); Expand the education and implementation of regenerative agriculture through WFOs.
Campti Field of Dreams     |     LA     |     2021
No-Till organic market gardens (No-Till OMG) will combine virtual training, a market garden fertility toolkit, financial incentives, and peer-to-peer mentoring with performance-based results over three years to shift the mindset of participants, creating viable organic agricultural producers that do not till.
Heartland Corporate Holdings, LLC     |     IL, IN, KS, MT, NE, NC, SC, TN, VA     |     2021
To demonstrate industrial Hemp cultivation with regenerative practices is an economically viable and scalable climate-smart rotational crop that improves soil health and sequesters carbon.
The Chickasaw Nation     |     OK     |     2021
The project will apply an innovative approach using enhanced satellite imagery analysis for optimizing efforts to identify and clear invasive red cedar trees in the CN treaty territory. This proposal involves identifying land parcels that are most suitable for cedar removal through prescribed fire and the transfer of the associated methods for potential integration into the Rangeland Analysis Platform (RAP).
Croatan Institute     |     CO, ME, MA, MO     |     2021
This project provides a supply chain solution to conservation by tying the food products to the production attributes (price discovery). Producers are compensated for the risk/inputs for those attributes and the markets are established by consumers in the recognition and payment of defined attributes. The end product will use the app Market Square to facilitate a pilot of producer to consumer transactions to establish market values.
Eagle County Conservation District     |     CO     |     2021
The project's primary goal is to assess how well Virtual Fencing can be applied to manage grazing of cattle at the rangeland scale and be implemented as an effective tool for grazing lands conservation, particularly in a rugged terrain that is topographically diverse which is characteristic of much of the rangelands of the Western U.S.
North Carolina State University     |     NC     |     2021
The project will demonstrate and evaluate the performance and economic feasibility of on-farm water capture and use for supplemental irrigation as a promising practice for: i) increasing crop production resilience to frequent and long dry periods during the crop growing season; ii) protecting water quality by reducing the amount of agricultural runoff enriched with nutrients, sediment, and other agrochemicals that reaches downstream surface water bodies; and iii) potentially mitigating flooding impacts of extreme storm events that annually hit the coastal communities in southeastern U.S. by temporarily storing runoff in the agricultural landscape.
Juniper Environmental, LLC     |     KS, NE     |     2021
This study aims to evaluate the performance of Low Tech Process Based (LTPB)complexes in Great Plains prairie streams to promote them as viable practices in the region to improve climate resiliency by addressing the effects of extreme climate events related to water quality, depth to water table, riparian & pasture vegetation improvements, and wildlife habitat over the course of three growing seasons.
Playa Lakes Joint Venture     |     KS, OK     |     2021
The project addresses invasive shrub encroachment on grasslands by understanding brush management beliefs and behavior. Project approach will identify barriers to adoption through a user-centered design approach, develop and test communication messages, and conduct focused outreach to increase proactive brush management behaviors to conserve grassland ecosystems.
