Plasticulture Grant Funds Available, Applications Due January 24

Posted by arthur1234 on January 10, 2011

A program directed toward small, limited resource producers wanting to expand specialty crop production is offering grants and up to one acre of plasticulture installation. Applications for the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry grants must be postmarked by January 24.

The program emphasizes marketing and requires a three year commitment as funds are provided in increments of a maximum of $500 each year. Micah Anderson, ODAFF Plasticulture Coordinator, said applicants will be evaluated based on experience, marketing plans and application date.

Grant funds may be used for soil and water testing, animal depredation control, wildlife fencing, fertilizer, scales, and plants. The plasticulture grant program currently has $7,500 available.

For additional information and grant forms contact Ashley Carroll at (405) 522-4330. Application forms are also available online at http://www.oda.state.ok.us/mktdev-plast.htm
