National Strawberry Sustainability Initiative

National Strawberry Sustainability Initiative

The National Strawberry Sustainability Initiative (NSSI) is a grants program administered by the Center for Agricultural and Rural Sustainability at University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, and made possible by a gift from the Walmart Foundation. The intent of this program is to improve the sustainability of the national strawberry industry through a multidisciplinary approach that features outreach, education, demonstration, and development projects. We have awarded grants to land-grant and state-supported universities that are implementing projects to encourage sustainability at all levels of the national strawberry industry, from production through the supply chain to the consumer level.
