USDA request start-up proposals from U.S. land-grant institutions to strengthen agricultural extension and training at select Iraqi agricultural universities so as to revitalize the agriculture sector in Iraq. The Iraq Agricultural Extension Revitalization Project (IAER) will be implemented by providing extension training programs for Iraqi nationals in the U.S. and at third country sites in ways that enhance agricultural management, production, and marketing related to small and medium-sized production enterprises. Training will be provided through partnerships that are built between U.S. land-grant institutions and Iraqi agricultural universities in each of five governorates of Iraq. In FY 2007, approximately $5.3 million is available for support of this program.
