The Strategic Field Program offers funding for rigorous field level demonstrations and/or the evaluation of targeted practices and technologies. The goal is to complete field research that is relevant and timely to producers, while advancing the objectives of the ministry. Funding is awarded on an annual basis and projects are selected by the Agricultural Development Fund (ADF) Advisory Committee.
The development of project proposals and applications for funding must be led by Ministry topic specialists and/or extension specialists. Researchers, producers, and producer/industry groups are not eligible to apply directly to this program.
