Category Explanation
In FY 2012, the Critical Agricultural Materials Program will support the development and field demonstration of new paint, coating, and adhesive products that are both agriculture-based and environmentally preferable. The objective of this program is to help product developers demonstrate functional performance and life-cycle environmental and economic performance against conventional products and applicable industry, military, and eco-labeling standards. The intended outcome of the Critical Agricultural Materials Program is to help commercialize agriculture-based products that can provide federal agencies, state entities, industry, the military, and consumers with safer, more cost effective, and environmentally preferable purchasing options.
