Attn Researchers: Agriculture Development Fund (ADF) Call for Letters of Intent

The Agriculture and Development fund (ADF) provides funding for basic and applied agriculture research projects in crops, livestock, forages, processing, soils, environment, horticulture and alternative crops. It provides project funding of nearly $15 million per year and selected on the basis of the research’s potential to create growth opportunities or enhance the competitiveness of the Saskatchewan agriculture industry.

Any person, business or organization with an idea that may be of practical value to Saskatchewan’s agriculture and food industry is encouraged to submit a LOI. The principal/lead investigator of the project must be a permanent full-time employee at a public or private Canadian research organization.

Letters of intent for the ADF must be submitted online at no later than April 14th. Successful letters of intent will be invited to submit a full application.

When seeking funding, researchers are encouraged to refer to the priorities and target research outcomes in the Canadian Beef Research and Technology Transfer Strategy.
