The Agricultural Development and Promotion Funds Program was designed to promote agricultural growth and rural stability, maintain or increase market share for products already on the market, develop markets for new products, and develop value-added products. In the past, funding has gone to numerous groups and individuals for a wide variety of projects and programs, including on-farm demonstration projects to determine the production potential of a particular specialty crop or variety, an array of feasibility and marketing studies, and promotional campaigns.
Funding through the Agricultural Development and Promotion Funds Program is made possible every year through the New Mexico Specialty Crops Act of 1983. That act was created “to facilitate the production and market development of high-value agricultural products”. That means agricultural companies may apply for the funds for the purpose of “marketing, production demonstration and promotional activities; market potential surveys; specialty crop production demonstrations; facilitation of the development of marketing facilities; participation in national and international trade shows; and administrative costs.”
