SACRAMENTO, November 9, 2023 – CDFA’s Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation is pleased to announce the award of more than $1.142 million in grants for demonstration projects in its Healthy Soils Program.
The demonstration grants fund on-farm demonstration projects that collect data, showcase conservation management practices and create a platform promoting the widespread adoption of healthy-soils practices throughout the state.
Each of the grant awardees will reach out to a minimum of 80 individual California farmers or ranchers through outreach events during the grant term. Attendees at events may include farm and ranch owners; and their employees, including certified crop advisors (CCAs); pest control advisors (PCAs); and other key farm advisors. The awardees will share tips on how to implement the demonstrated practices successfully as well as discuss the benefits and effectiveness of the practices.
