USDA awards over $243 mln in grants to strengthen specialty crop industry

The US Department of Agriculture has announced an investment of more than $243 million in grants to support specialty crops, including fruits, vegetables, tree nuts and nursery crops through two USDA programs: the Specialty Crop Block Grant Program and the Specialty Crop Research Initiative grants program.

In effect, the USDA is investing $169.9 million through the Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP) to support farmers growing specialty crops, including fruits, vegetables, tree nuts and nursery crops. Since 2006, USDA has invested more than $880 million through SCBGP to increase the long-term success of producers and broaden the market for specialty crops in the U.S. and abroad.
