NIFA Invests $5.5M in Agricultural Production Systems Research

The Foundational Knowledge of Agricultural Production Systems program area priority (AFRI A1102) within the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative supports plant research to advance our knowledge for the wide range of agricultural production systems found across the rural-urban continuum, from conventional open-fields to protected built environments. 

Research addresses critical or process-limiting dynamics that occur among and within the various management components of a production system using experimental manipulations of system components, technological interventions, system analyses, modeling, or agro-ecological approaches. 

Results are expected to lead to the development of innovative sustainable solutions to challenges limiting or threatening the productivity, profitability, and good stewardship of natural resources, environment, and human capital. These grants are part of NIFA’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI A1102).
