Grants offered to help Nebraska farmers grow specialty crops

The Nebraska Agriculture Department is offering $600,000 in grants to help farmers produce specialty crops such as fruits, vegetables and nuts in the state.

The deadline for the grant applications is Feb. 9.

State Agriculture Director Steve Wellman says there are a number of specialty crops already thriving in the state. The grant money can help pay for research, development or marketing of specialty crops.

Last year, thirteen grants worth a total of roughly $600,000 were handed out in the state.
