State receives $3.1M in federal funding for specialty crops
North Dakota will receive $3.1 million in federal funding for specialty crops through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Specialty Crop Block Grant Program, a part of the 2014 farm bill.
The program supports states’ efforts to enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops, such as fruits, vegetables, herbs and tree nuts. North Dakota has a strong specialty crop industry and often leads the U.S. in dry beans, dry peas, lentils, confection sunflowers and honey production.
