SDSU Receives Grant For Climate-Smart Projects

(Rapid City, SD) — South Dakota State University is receiving a federal grant to fund “climate smart” projects across the state. The over one-million dollar grant comes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will help the university implement climate-smart practices in farming across the state. The agriculture team at SDSU hopes a new project will overcome barriers to implementing techniques such as soil health practices, no-till farming, and planting cover crops. The grant will allow farmers on the eastern side of the state to have similar access to resources that are available to farmers on the western side.
