From watering crops to timing planting patterns, NASA Earth observations can inform agricultural decision making and help farmers and ranchers save money and resources. NASA’s Agriculture program area is sponsoring a Call for Proposals for a Program Management Capability for Earth Science Applications in Agriculture. This solicitation seeks proposals for a consortium that develops and implements a program management team in order to increase and enable sustained uses of Earth observations in domestic agricultural practices for economic and social benefits.

Examples of how NASA Earth observations inform activities in agriculture can be found on the Agriculture homepage. Notices of Intent to propose are requested by April 8, 2022, and proposals are due June 17, 2022.

Questions may be sent to Bradley Doorn at Bradley.Doorn@nasa.gov. Full details and instructions to apply for this solicitation can be found on the Agriculture Applications proposal information page.
