From the Ag Information Network, this is your Agribusiness Update.

**Growers are always looking for ways to maintain or increase their yields and boost the ability of their crops to resist pests, diseases and excessive heat.

www.morningagclips.com reports that’s of particular importance who grow high-intensity crops like Florida tomatoes.

To explore other options, the USDA’s National Institute of

Food and Ag has awarded University of Florida associate professor Sarah Straus a $700,000 federal grant to study ways to increase soil productivity.


**American Farmland Trust is accepting applications to help farmers nationwide improve farm viability, access, transfer, permanently protect farmland, or adopt regenerative ag practices.

AFT’s Brighter Future Fund’s “National Grant for Historically Underserved Farmers and Ranchers” provides grants of up to $5,000 per project.

The grant focuses on beginning, socially disadvantaged, limited resource, women, and veteran farmers and ranchers.

In 2024, the grant program will continue to fund farmers and ranchers nationwide.

**Senator Debbie Stabenow, chair of the Senate Ag Committee, is not happy about the payment error rate for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

She says it’s critical that the program is accurate to protect program integrity and ensure people receive the assistance they need to put food on the table, and the national error rate is unacceptable.

In other words, Stabenow says, it’s about accuracy and not fraud.
