The North Central Canola Research Program (NCCRP) is part of the National Canola Research Program. This program is federally funded and is administered through the USDA/Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service (CSREES) and North Dakota State University. The NCCRP includes the states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin and is coordinated by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station under the direction of Dr. Ken Grafton and Brian Jenks
The NCCRP provides funding for scientists to address research needs and issues that will increase producer productivity and profitability. Research in new or expanded areas of canola seed, oil and meal will expand market potential. Research proposals are solicited each year and reviewed by a committee consisting of canola researchers, industry leaders and producers. This funding has been made possible, in part, by the efforts of the U.S. Canola Association, the Northern Canola Growers Association, and the Minnesota Canola Council.
Funds awarded for fiscal year 2017 will be awarded as a continuation award for those that received an award in 2016. For those that did not receive an award in 2016, this will be a new award.
When to Submit: Proposals are due by January 31, 2017 and will need to be sent as an email attachment to Ona.Vig@ndsu.edu.
