issued under 2008 legislation.

3 project types now offered include:

   - Integrated research and extension projects
   - Conference proposals
   - Analytical proposals highlighting impact since program inception in

Take advantage of the largest single source of organic research and
education funding. Send your proposals in TODAY!
