Proposal abstract:

Nevada’s SARE-Professional Development Program (PDP) will support training for Cooperative Extension faculty
and staff, faculty from the University of Nevada’s College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources,
and any other Government/Non-government agency or organizations that apply for support. Training will
improve their knowledge and understanding of SARE principles related to sustainable agriculture. SARE-PDP
funds will help professionals incorporate sustainability principles in education, technical assistance and outreach
programs. SARE funding may also, support inter-agency teams (assembled by Extension) to hold training
sessions in Nevada with national experts and from Nevada’s agricultural community, including state and federal
agencies and farmers.

Project objectives from proposal:

Nevada’s SARE-Professional Development Program (PDP) for 2021 will support training for Cooperative
Extension faculty and staff, faculty from the University of Nevada’s College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and
Natural Resources, and any other Government/Non-government agency or organizations that apply for support.
Due to the lack of sustainable agricultural resources available in Nevada, professionals need to seek outside
training to improve their knowledge and understanding of SARE principles related to sustainable agriculture,
which include profit over the long term, stewardship of our nation’s land, air and water, and quality of life for
farmers, ranchers and their communities.
SARE-PDP funds will help professionals incorporate sustainability principles in education, technical assistance
and outreach programs. SARE funding may also, support inter-agency teams (assembled by Extension) to hold
training sessions in Nevada with national experts and from Nevada’s agricultural community, including state and
federal agencies and farmers.
