The Supplemental and Alternative Crops Competitive (SACC) Grants Program will support the development of canola as a viable supplemental and alternative crop in the United States.
The goal of the SACC program is to significantly increase crop production and/or acreage by developing and testing
of superior germplasm, improving methods of planting, cultivation, and harvesting, and transferring new knowledge to producers (via Extension) as soon as practicable.
Extension, education, and communication activities related to the research areas above must be addressed in the proposal.
