ALABAMA RECEIVES GRANT TO STUDY ENERGY USES FOR FARM AND FORESTRY PRODUCTS

Alabama is one of 23 states that will receive matching grants from the US Department of Agriculture to support agricultural market research and demonstration projects.

Alabama will receive $68,200 to the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, in cooperation with Auburn University, to analyze the market for biomass derived from by products of agricultural and forestry production. The grant also will help evaluate milling and transportation requirements for several raw by products and will be used to assess the market for biopower generated from biomass as an alternative input for coal fired power plants in the state.

Agriculture Secretary Ann M. Veneman announced that 27 matching grants totaling $1,338,000 have been awarded nationwide as part of the Federal State Marketing Improvement Program (FSMIP), and will be used to explore new and innovative approaches to marketing U.S. food and agricultural products and improve the efficiency and performance of the marketing system.
