BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring announced that applications are open for trade show participation grants. The grant program will assist value-added agriculture companies in exploring domestic wholesale markets by exhibiting at trade shows outside of the state.

“Exhibiting at a domestic trade show can help boost sales, make key business connections and diversify markets,” Goehring said. “Value-added ag companies are eligible to apply to promote specialty crops such as dry edible beans, dry edible peas, lentils, honey, confection sunflower and potatoes.”

Companies may be reimbursed for eligible expenses up to $7,000 per show.
