Farm Forum

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – A group that funds developers of North Dakota farm products will consider grant requests totaling more than $300,000 at its quarterly meeting this month in Medora.

The Agricultural Products Utilization Commission will review 11 requests on July 22.

Among the groups making requests is North Dakota State University’s Department of Veterinary and Microbiology Sciences, which wants $76,140 to defray costs of a program to prevent illness from the transmission of bacteria to food processing equipment.
