ORONO Researchers at the University of Maine have received a $1 million federal grant from the U.S Department of Agriculture to continue their efforts in boosting organic grain production in northern New England.

'We are very excited by this new USDA award in that it recognizes the impact of the work we've done with farmers, millers and bakers with our prior grant to build a local, organic bread wheat economy in our region,' Ellen Mallory, University of Maine Cooperative Extension specialist and associate professor of sustainable agriculture at UMaine, says.
