Horticultural Research Grants

ByAnn Bates

Idaho Nursery and Florist Advisory Council

In 1999 The Idaho Department of Agriculture began collecting an estimated $36,000 per year from a twenty five dollar per year fee from the Nursery and Florist licensees for research purposes.

Research is solicited from two-year schools and vocational programs, four-year colleges, universities, including campus, research and extension centers, non-profit organizations, private interests and companies.

Research proposals must be on projects of interest to the green industry in the inland mountain region. Priority will be given to research projects suggested by a survey of all licensed nurseries and florists in Idaho.

Link to Idaho Department of Agriculture Nursery and Florists Advisory Committe Web page where you can find proposal forms if you are planning on submitting a proposal to the committee, in consideration for a grant.

Cover letters for your grant forms are now available from the Idaho Department of Agriculture.
