Grant Description
Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit and for-profit organizations, IHEs, and US government-affiliated research agencies to assist farmers in eligible regions in making their crops more resilient to climate change. Applicants are required to submit a pre-application prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended to improve climate resiliency of farms and food value chains in North America, Europe, South Africa, and Australia.

The AgMission initiative is launching a funding opportunity for action research to accelerate the adoption of Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) and improve climate resiliency of farms and food value chains in North America, Europe, South Africa and Australia. FFAR invites applications to develop paired research and practice implementation projects that identify opportunities for increased adoption of climate resilient practices and document the impact on key physical and economic variables at the farm level. Specifically, this opportunity seeks to identify practices that promote climate resilience and align with regenerative agriculture goals, including building soil health and fertility, reducing greenhouse gas emissions or increasing soil organic carbon. Additional regenerative co-benefits of practice adoption may include reducing fertilizer loss to watersheds and increasing biodiversity on working lands.

AgMission seeks to award meritorious applications that include both increased implementation of CSA practices on working farms and contribute to scientific understanding of the impact of climate resilience in agricultural production for future food security.

Successful projects will:

  • Collaborate with farmers and agricultural value chain stakeholders in the region of interest and incorporate stakeholder perspectives, questions and concerns in the project design.
  • Emphasize close collaboration between researchers and implementor organizations with a track record of direct engagement with farmers to ensure the project generates in-field impact as well as valid research.
  • Test strategies and make recommendations on how to effectively increase adoption of regenerative practices with a community of agricultural producers.
  • Include monitoring and/or estimation of the GHG impact from the adoption of climate resilient practices and demonstrate increased adoption of CSA practices across the region of study.
  • Evaluate the impact of the selected CSA practices on crop yield, crop quality and future security of food supply from the study region.
  • Document both the economic and environmental impact of the practices on farm level resiliency. 


Additional Eligibility Criteria
AgMission welcomes applications from domestic and international project implementers, higher education institutions, non-profit and for-profit organizations, and US government-affiliated research agencies. Collaborative multi-institution applications are encouraged.

Any individual(s) with the skills, knowledge and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s) may apply to the program through their home institution or organization.
