Mississippi SARE Program
The Mississippi Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) is a professional development program sponsored by the Southern Region SARE and co-coordinated by Mississippi State University and Alcorn State University. We work together to deliver a program that enhances the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of the state through research and education. Mississippi SARE partners with researchers, extension faculty, producers, and community organizations to research and implement the best science-based practices available in all aspects of Mississippi's agricultural system. In addition to research, SARE is dedicated to providing education in sustainable agriculture through various trainings offered each year.  SARE has awarded a total of 24 grants in Mississippi since 1988. 

Southern SARE offers seven grant opportunities to individuals and institutions in the Southern region.  The S-SARE Program recognizes the value and importance of on the farm, producer experience in developing solutions to agricultural production challenges.  In order to capture this producer experience, the S-SARE program offers a competitive grants program called the Producer Grant program. Through the Producer Grant program, farmers and ranchers can conduct research projects to solve production or marketing challenges and problems they face.
