Some grants are designed to help growers of specific crops.

For example, Michigan onion growers will receive help to fight pink root and bacterial rot, including evaluating fungicides and scouting fields for pathogens; Cornell University will receive funds to support increased production of New York mild onions with longer-storing hybrids; and a grant to the Vidal Onion Committee is for increasing consumer awareness with the Sweet Vidalia Flavors of Summer campaign.
