Payments to Agricultural Experiment Stations Under the Hatch Act

To support agricultural research at State Agricultural Experiment Stations.

Its purpose is to promote efficient production, marketing, distribution, and utilization of products of the farm as essential to the health and welfare of people and to promote a sound prosperous agriculture and rural
life.

Up to 25 percent (25%) of funds to be used for integrated cooperative research and extension activities.



Two (2) Programs are funded under CFDA 10.203.

Specific Objectives are as follows:

(A) The Hatch Act of 1887 (Regular Research)
The Hatch Act of 1887 provides the basis for Federal funding for agricultural research activities at the State Agricultural Experiment Stations in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the Insular Areas.
State Agricultural Experiment Stations are eligible for funds appropriated under this Act according to the following formula: The previous year?s base plus the current year increase as follows:
Three percent (3%) for Federal Administration,
Twenty percent (20%) equally,
Twenty-six percent (26%) in an amount which bears the same ratio to the total amount to be allotted as the rural population of the State bears to the total rural population of all the States as determined by the last preceding decennial census;
Twenty-six percent (26%) t in an amount which bears the same ratio to the total amount to be allotted as the farm population of the State bears to the total farm population of all the States as determined by the last preceding decennial census.

Twenty-five percent (25%) for the Hatch Multistate Research Fund.

(B) The Hatch Act of 1887 (Multistate Research)
Not less than twenty-five percent (25%) of the total Hatch Act of 1887 funding is allotted to the States for cooperative research employing multidisciplinary approaches in which a State agricultural experiment station, working with another State agricultural experiment station, the Agricultural Research Service, or a college or university, cooperates to solve problems that concern more than one (1) State.

These funds are designated as the ??Multistate Research Fund, State Agricultural Experiment Stations.? Funds are allocated on a prorata basis and allocations are adjusted to support national and regional projects.

These projects and their associated budgets are reviewed and approved annually.

The 25 percent applies to any amounts appropriated above the level of funding in 1955 (the base year).

Examples of Funded Projects

Fiscal Year 2016: (A) FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2016 ? HATCH REGULAR RESEARCH: A Southern Region study was conducted to improve disease resistance and fruit quality in peaches using traditional breeding and molecular approaches because the perfect peach - consistently exceeding consumer expectations with satisfying appearance, aroma, flavor, shelf life, and texture and meeting industry needs for durable disease resistances - remains elusive.

This work lead to the development and application of DNA tests, which, when combined with phenotypic data, have facilitated breeding programs combining horticultural quality with leaf resistance to bacterial spot and fruit resistance to brown rot. A Western Region project studied Staphylococcus aureus (S.

aureus) colonization and infection in horses and cattle.

Investigators examined how different strains of S.

aureus isolated from mastitic cows impact the outcome of mammary gland infection.

This led to a better understanding of what virulence factors are used by S.

aureus to cause disease, which will guide future vaccine designs.

A project from the North Central region investigated novel methods for soybean genetic improvement and genomic analysis.

Researchers discovered new Quantitative Trait Loci (QTLs) for soybean seed protein and oil content, and one (1) of the QTLs greatly influences seed protein content. (B) FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2016 ? HATCH MULTI-STATE RESEARCH: A new project was initiated in FY 2016.

The project will: a) develop chemical ecology tools and information to support sustainable agriculture by reducing damage by pests in crops such as potatoes, brassicas, cucurbits, apples, blueberries, and sweet corn, while maintaining pollinator health in agricultural systems; b) define variability of chemically mediated interactions between pests, crops, and beneficial organisms in terms of plant chemistry, species interactions and landscape factors in the Northeast; c) characterize the non-target effects of pesticides on pollinators and natural enemies of pests; d) assess the impact of domestication on plant and animal chemical ecology in agricultural fields and identify unifying patterns of human and natural selection on chemical interactions of crop plants; e) establish a chemical ecology analytical facility for the Northeast to allow researchers ready access to equipment and technical expertise; and f) use extension to facilitate adoption and awareness of science-based chemical ecology tools to support sustainable production. Examples of research on continuing projects in FY 2016 include: (1) A project will include: a) evaluation of microbial species with potential for biological control of soil-borne plant pathogens; b) validation of new collection, detection and diagnostic protocols; c) assessment of responses to sub-inhibitory fungicides in fungal plant pathogen populations; d) population genetic analysis of P.

continuous stocking of breeding cattle; c) experiments evaluating modified intensive-early stocking vs.

continuous stocking of breeding cattle and influence of grazing strategies on grazing land productivity, harvest efficiency, and health; d) experiments evaluating inter-seeding annuals into cool-season and warm-season grass pastures to evaluate how weather variability influences results; e) evaluation of forage yield, forage quality, animal performance, and subsequent crop yield from forage crop use; f) evaluation of calf health, reproductive performance, cow body condition score, and calf performance from confined cow sites; and g) dissemination of information via Extension efforts.

Fiscal Year 2017: (A) FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2017 ? HATCH REGULAR RESEARCH: Investigators in the Western Region are working to connect water quantity and water quality considerations in water-scarce regions of the arid southwest.

Researchers have completed a detailed analyses of water policies, including such topics as groundwater governance in the United States, the use of grey water by the building/engineering industries, and the detection of antibiotic resistance in environmental matrices, such as recycled water and grey water.

This work will help to develop guidelines for the future matching of water supplies to appropriate uses. (B) FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2017 ? HATCH MULTI-STATE RESEARCH: New projects initiated/renewed in 2017 include the following: (1) The project will: a) conduct multidisciplinary conventional and molecular marker-assisted breeding, germplasm enhancement, and early-generation selection research to improve potato productivity and quality for important Eastern U.S.

markets.

This will help develop new potato varieties with improved disease and insect resistance, resistance to internal heat necrosis, improved processing or fresh market characteristics, and enhanced nutritional quality will be released, providing growers with better marketing opportunities and/or improved resistance to pests; b) use novel and improved potato germplasm to reduce the impact of economically important potato pests in the Eastern US.

This will increase adoption of new, high quality, pest resistant varieties, leading to increased profitability, greater worker safety, and reduced pesticide load in the environment and human diet; c) evaluate yield, quality, and pest resistance of preliminary and advanced potato breeding lines in experimental- and commercial-scale trials at multiple Eastern locations to aid industry adoption of new varieties.

Multi-site evaluation and selection process will result in the release of new, broadly adapted potato varieties that will be stress tolerant and suitable for use in a changing climate; and d) provide timely and relevant information to stakeholders through various means including the maintenance of a project website and a web-based potato variety performance database for use by researchers, extension, potato growers, and allied industry members.

Web-based and traditional conduits will be used for the distribution of timely and readily available potato variety production information to growers, allied industry members and consumers will be further developed and strengthened. (2) The project will: a) develop new technologies for characterizing fundamental nanoscale processes; b) construct and characterize self-assembled nanostructures that will lead to development of tools and products and benefit different aspects of agriculture and biological engineering research; c) develop devices and systems incorporating microfabrication and nanotechnology; d) develop a framework for economic, environmental and health risk assessment for nanotechnologies applied to food, agriculture and biological systems; e) develop/improve education and outreach materials on nanofabrication, sensing, systems integration and application risk assessment; and f) improve academic-industry partnership to help move the developed technologies to commercialization phase. Examples of research on continuing projects include: (1) The project will: a) develop new technologies for management of flies (biting and nuisance) in organic and conventional animal agriculture systems.

Fiscal Year 2018: (A) FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2018 ? HATCH REGULAR RESEARCH: A North Central study is investigating biocontrol of foodborne pathogens on fresh produce.

Recently, there has been an increase in the number of disease outbreaks associated with fresh produce contaminated with pathogens such as Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella sp., Listeria monocytogenes, and others.

Researchers are working to develop and optimize a bacteriophage treatment to control enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli on fresh produce.

Bacteriophages are potentially useful in controlling foodborne pathogens on minimally processed products since phage application is a non-destructive treatment. (B) FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2018 ? HATCH MULTI-STATE RESEARCH: New projects which will begin in 2018 include: (1) Regulation of Photosynthetic Processes Collaborators participating in this regional project will place considerable focus on understanding and improving the response of photosynthesis to genetic, developmental and environmental factors that limit productivity.

The research spans all levels of organization from the molecular and cellular through the leaf, whole plant and canopy.

Particular emphasis will be placed on abiotic stresses (i.e., heat, cold, drought and salinity), nitrogen- and water-use efficiency, carbon flux pathways, and the signal transduction mechanisms that initiate the plant response. (2) Enteric Diseases of Food Animals: Enhanced Prevention, Control and Food Safety The long-term goal of this collaborative project is to develop strategies to prevent and control enteric diseases of cattle, swine, and poultry, ultimately to decrease the incidence of enteric diseases in food animals, and decrease zoonotic food and water-borne illnesses in the USA. (3) Improving Forage and Bioenergy Crops for Better Adaptation, Resilience, and Flexibility This project is directed to these focus areas: Breeding crops with higher forage yield, improved forage quality for livestock production, longevity, and resistance or tolerance to biotic and abiotic stress conditions will provide more economical food production; forage crops need to be developed that will be productive under abiotic stresses, including drought, flooding, cold and warm temperatures, and soil salinity; Research needs to be done on stand establishment (improved seed germination and seedling vigor), biomass production, disease and insect resistance, etc., across multiple environments, especially on marginal soils where these species are likely to be used without competing with food crops; and Improving the yield, nutritional quality, and storability of forage crops will ensure an ample supply of good quality feed to animals and an essential step in securing the food chain to the consumer. (4) Elder Financial Exploitation: Family Risk and Protective Factors This project will address five (5) objectives: a) understand family members' experiences (thoughts and feelings) related to elder financial exploitation by a relative; b) identify risk and protective factors in family systems that increase or decrease the likelihood of family elder financial exploitation; c) identify the range and scope of family experiences foundational to family elder financial exploitation, including the consequences of EFE on family systems; d) disseminate findings and implications to gerontology, family studies, and family economics researchers and educators, law enforcement and attorneys, community-based practitioners, and family members; and e) continue to design further studies that build on earlier findings and create a conceptual model or expand Rabiner et al.

(2004) Conceptual Model of Elder Financial Exploitation. (5) Social, Economic and Environmental Causes and Consequences of Demographic Change in Rural America This project proposes to undertake a comprehensive analysis of current population processes affecting U.S.

rural areas and provide to stakeholders policy-relevant research findings on the demographic causes and consequences of socioeconomic and environmental change.
