About Seeding Solutions
Launched in 2017, Seeding Solutions is our annual competitive grant program that supports bold research in any of our six Challenge Areas or AgMission. FFAR awards approximately 10 grants ranging between $300,000 to $1 million. Grantees must provide matching funds from non-federal partners.
We support innovative projects that address challenges in food supply and agroecosystem management through novel partnerships. Such collaborations provide opportunities to engage stakeholders as integral members of the research team and increase the likelihood of a project’s application beyond its scope.
