The North Dakota Agricultural Products Utilization Commission (APUC), a branch of the North Dakota Department of Agriculture, has recently announced grant awards totaling $123,750.

These funds were approved during their quarterly meeting on May 30 in Fargo, aimed at enriching the state's agricultural sector.

APUC supports diverse initiatives such as basic and applied research, marketing, farm diversification, agritourism, and technology development, all aimed at enhancing the use and development of North Dakota's agricultural products. This funding also plays a crucial role in bolstering rural communities and agricultural operations throughout the state.

The recipients of the latest funding round include:

Strong Communities, LLC: Awarded $50,000 to conduct a feasibility study on using industry-specific energy solutions in greenhouse and container farms. For more details, contact Megan Langley.

CoJack Snack and Pack LLC: Received $73,750 to aid their trade show marketing efforts. For inquiries, contact Brian Engstrom.

The next opportunity for funding will be at the APUC’s upcoming grant application hearing, scheduled for July 31 to August 1, 2024, in Medora. Applicants interested in securing support for innovative agricultural projects should submit their applications by July 1, 2024.

This ongoing initiative highlights North Dakota's commitment to advancing agricultural technology and supporting its rural economies.
