The goal of the Supplemental and Alternative Crops Competitive Grants Program (SACC) is to significantly increase canola crop production and/or acreage by developing and testing of superior germplasm, methods of planting, cultivation, harvesting, and then transferring new knowledge to producers (via Extension) as soon as practicable. Priority will be given to applications that provide evidence of multi-state cooperation with a minimum of three state cooperators and that utilize existing expertise of land-grant colleges and universities and government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service (ARS).
