Programs

NIFA programs are the mechanism by which we pursue our mission to invest in and advance agricultural research, education, and extension to solve societal challenges. Some programs administer funding and offer leadership while others focus on national leadership and collaboration. For more information on a particular program, use the site’s search tool.

NIFA supports research and extension projects designed to provide answers to the many challenges weedy plants pose for agricultural production and managed properties in residential and urban areas.
