USDA issues $3m grant to find more places for growing produce
Thanks to a new $3 million federal grant from USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Senthold Asseng, a UF/IFAS Professor of agricultural and biological engineering, and scientist David Gustafson of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Research Foundation will lead a four-year research project to find more places to grow produce.
Asseng, Gustafson, and a team of leading scientists from the International Food Policy Research Institute, University of Arkansas, University of Illinois, Washington State University, and the World Agricultural Economic and Environmental Services will use crop, environmental, economic, and climate modeling to predict current and future impacts on yield.
They also will study the quality of selected fruit and vegetable crops in states where they are currently grown and identify future locations that will allow for continued or potentially increased production. They will also use climate date to find new places with a sufficient supply of water to grow fruits and vegetables.
The team of researchers involved in this project will combine economic and crop models to determine current and future prices and production costs of crops such as carrots, green beans, oranges, potatoes, spinach, strawberries, sweet corn, and tomatoes.
