$18.75 Million To Boost International Efforts
Small farming households may be the key to fighting the widespread hunger problem. A new $18.75 million grant has just been awarded to UC Davis for their outstanding work in this field, particularly with optimizing small farming practices. In conjunction with the Horticulture Innovation Lab, UC Cooperative Extension has been working to solve agricultural problems and develop long-term relationships with other land-grant universities who provide research to the innovation lab. All the research is done under the umbrella of “Feed the Future”, the U.S. government’s global hunger and food security initiative. This program supports a country-led approach to reduce hunger, poverty, and malnutrition by promoting growth in the agriculture sector.
