USDA awards $55 million to specialty crop projects nationwide

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack recently announced the awarding of $55 million, through the Specialty Crop Block Grants, to fund 748 projects throughout the U.S and its territories. Specialty crops include things like nursery and greenhouse crops, fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, and Christmas trees. More than three-quarters of the dollars went to support projects that are focused on marketing, education, dealing with pest and disease issues, and research.
