Projects that achieve significant reductions in diesel emissions in terms of tons of pollution produced by diesel engines and diesel emissions exposure.
Develop or refine tribal wetland programs.
Enable the nation's agriculture and forest lands to adapt to current and future climate conditions, maintain or increase production, efficiently use soil and water resources, and improve soil, water and air conditions.
Achieve the long term outcome of reducing our nation’s dependence on foreign oil.
Build foundation of knowledge critical for solving current and future societal challenges. Priority areas are: Plant Health and Production and Plant Products; Animal Health and Production and Animal Products; Food Safety, Nutrition, and Health; Bioenergy, Natural Resources, and Environment; Agriculture Systems and Technology; and Agriculture Economics and Rural Communities.
Develop/refine state and tribal wetland programs.
Address regional or national level priority needs (called national conservation needs) of the State fish and wildlife agencies that are beyond the scope and capabilities of a single state.
Lead to the transfer of conservation technologies, management systems, and innovative approaches (such as market-based systems) to EQIP eligible producers.
Investigate issues related directly to the management of white-nose syndrome (WNS).
Provide the United States with accurate and timely standardized data and supports ongoing efforts within the public health and environmental sectors to improve data collection, accessibility, and dissemination as well as analytic and response capacity.
Multidisciplinary systems approaches which integrate new technologies and strategic management that solve water availability and quality challenges in food production systems.
Enable the crop protection industry to provide safe, effective, and economical crop protection products for growers and consumers of minor/specialty crops.
Financial assistance to state wildlife agencies for issues related directly to the management of white-nose syndrome (WNS).
Research on the processes that mediate beneficial and antagonistic interactions between plants and their viral, bacterial, oomycete, fungal, plant, and invertebrate symbionts, pathogens and pests.
Research in earthquake hazards, the physics of earthquakes, earthquake occurrence, and earthquake safety policy.
Address high priority issues related to pests and their management using IPM approaches at the state, regional and national levels.
