USDA seeks stakeholder input on research priorities

USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) is seeking input from stakeholders to prioritize agricultural science research, identify gaps in programming, and determine which programs are redundant or underperforming. As part of this, the agency will hold four in-person listening sessions in different regions of the country to help outline what priorities NIFA should address and the most promising opportunities for advancing food and agricultural sciences. The sessions will be held Oct. 19 in Kansas City, Missouri; Oct. 26 in Atlanta, Georgia; Nov. 2 in Sacramento, California; and Nov. 8 in Hyattsville, Maryland. To contribute ideas online and register for a listening session, fill out NIFA’s input form.  Submissions of written comments will be accepted through December 1.
