USDA provides specialty crop money for Illinois
SPRINGFIELD – The U.S. Department of Agriculture is providing about $630,000 to help pay for a dozen projects in Illinois intended to strengthen the specialty crop industry in the state.
The Illinois Department of Agriculture said Tuesday the grant will be used for projects that include a University of Illinois effort to improve produce handling at farmers markets and a social media campaign to inform people of specialty crop growers.
Other projects include a buy-local marketing campaign in grocery stores and farmers markets and educational conferences for farmers.
