Conservation of Natural Resources


The goal of the program is to commercialize innovative technologies that are developed with the purpose to conserve, monitor, improve and/or protect the quality and/or quantity of natural resources and reduce potential waste streams while sustaining climate-smart, optimal farm and forest productivity and profitability. The objective of this topic area is the conservation of soil, water, air, and other natural resources on landscapes that produce agricultural, natural and forest/rangeland goods and services. We encourage new technologies and innovations applying circular agriculture principles that will make use of waste or byproducts, help improve soil health, reduce soil erosion, improve water and air quality, improve nutrient management and conserve and use water more effectively.
