Kansas State Awards Global Food Research Grants

Kansas State University has awarded $500,000 in grants to faculty members who are researching way to boost food production as the world population grows.

The university says the Kansas Department of Commerce provided the grant money, which will be divided among nine projects. One of the projects is a three-day symposium to increase education and food production in urban settings. Other projects will look into irrigation and improving the beef transport system.

An 11-member panel of faculty members and students evaluated the grant requests. The effort is part of the school's Global Food Systems Initiative.
