NIFA Invests $600K in Response to Extreme Weather Events Across the U.S. (AFRI A1712)

NIFA has funded — through the Rapid Response to Extreme Weather Events Across Food and Agriculture Systems program — a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill project related to drought and a Louisiana State University Agricultural Center project related to winter storms. Rapid responses to extreme weather events are critical to maintaining a secure, accessible, safe, nutritious, affordable and abundant food supply. Innovative Extension and applied research efforts are needed to alleviate the impacts of extreme weather and disasters across the food and agricultural system.

The Rapid Response to Extreme Weather Events program, funded through the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative, is designed to rapidly deploy strategies and fill knowledge and information gaps to protect the nation’s food and agricultural supply chains — from production through consumption — during and after extreme weather and disasters.
