OUR WORK

AgMission is funding audacious research to connect producers with researchers, integrate new and existing knowledge, address research gaps and accelerate the adoption of climate-smart practices.

Now is the time to build farmer resiliency in response to changing climate conditions. AgMission connects farmers, ranchers and scientists to accelerate agriculture’s potential for significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

AgMission’s research builds on existing work, expands innovation and adaptation to address urgent challenges farmers face and develops climate-smart technologies.

Taking a Farmers First Approach

We fund bold research that ladders up to at least one of our four Project Pathways:

  1. Connect producers & researchers to co-create research that advances practical, scalable solutions.
  2. Integrate & navigate knowledge to catalyze information sharing and accelerate the pace of research.
  3. Create new knowledge to expand climate-smart agriculture information frontiers and address research gaps as a public good.
  4. Accelerate adoption by generating and disseminating practical insights and technology to increase producer adoption of climate-smart agriculture.

Farmers are on the front lines of climate change, and are at the core of AgMission. By co-collaborating, we can ensure solutions are viable, data-grounded and economically and environmentally sustainable. As no two farms or ranches are alike, climate practices must be equally diverse and customizable.
