Specialty crops deadline nears


A federal specialty crop grant program aimed at increasing the consumption and competitiveness of fruits, vegetables, tree nuts and other qualified crops could mean more than $160,000 in funds for Oklahoma this year. The deadline for applications is August 10.

Although funds are provided through USDA, all states are charged with administering and submitting grant proposals. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry's Market Development Division is administering the state's program.

"We're really excited about the possibilities this grant program can provide to not only enhance our specialty crop industries but to promote better nutrition and health as well," said Secretary of Agriculture Terry Peach.

There are extensive guidelines regarding what can and cannot be funded through the program. Complete rules and the application form are available on the ODAFF website at http://www.oda.state.ok.us

Questions can also be directed to ODAFF coordinator Johnny Roberts at 405-522-6194 or by email at johnny.roberts@oda.state.ok.us
