In spring of 2020, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) announced a research investment to look at the impact of COVID-19 on American agriculture.

NIFA opened its request for applications for research or extension activities focused on developing and deploying rapid, reliable, and readily adoptable COVID-19 agricultural strategies across the food and agriculture enterprise.
