FFAR supports research programs designed to spur food and agriculture innovation and elevate the visibility of food and agriculture research in the scientific arena.

FFAR can provide up to 50 percent of all needed funds to implement these programs and seeks the remaining support from academic, private, public and nonprofit institutions that share its goals. As part of the requirements in the 2014 Farm Bill the $200M provided must be matched by non-U.S. federal funds before it can be invested in a program.  FFAR actively seeks contributors who will invest with us to identify, research, and implement innovative technologies with the potential to make ground-breaking progress.

By collaborating with FFAR you know your contribution can be leveraged to send a powerful message that you share the Foundation’s mission to foster unique partnerships and enhance the resilience of our food supply.
