What we do

The NSSI is a competitive grants program that aims to move sustainable production forward through multidisciplinary projects focused on new and proven technology, demonstration, outreach, extension and education, resulting in increased sustainable production and supply of strawberries to consumers.











This project was funded by a grant from the Walmart Foundation and administered by the
University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Center for Agricultural and Rural Sustainability.
