One of the clearest examples of CSANR impact is through BIOAg, a competitive grant program designed to promote research, education, and Extension work in biologically intensive, organic, and sustainable agriculture systems.

In the last five years alone, BIOAg projects have leveraged over $24 million through federally funded grants, state initiatives, and university projects based on an initial Center investment of $2 million. We believe the BIOAg program is essential in creating and maintaining momentum for innovative solutions in sustainable agriculture and building opportunities for WSU faculty to create national impact. BIOAg investigators represent over 22 departments, schools, colleges, and agencies across WSU and Washington state, bringing together a broad range of disciplines to further engage actionable research.

The 2023 cohort of funded projects focus on management for soil health, livestock integration, and increasing our understanding of diverse sustainable practices.
