EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) is USDA's flagship competitive grant program that provides funding for fundamental and applied research, education, and extension projects in the food and agricultural sciences. Within AFRI, the longterm purpose of this Sustainable Agricultural Systems (SAS) Request for Applications (RFA) is to help transform the U.S. food and agricultural system to increase agricultural production by 40% in sustainable ways as we approach a world population of 10 billion by 2050 and to do so in the context of economic, societal, and environmental attributes of sustainability.
Solving agricultural challenges will require a convergence of science, technology, and policy to improve agricultural productivity; ensure a safe, affordable, and nutritious supply of food; invigorate and realize the promise of the bioeconomy; and promote the development of a talented agricultural workforce. Recent advances in plant and animal biology, new technologies, the integration of large and complex sources of data knowledge of infrastructure and markets, and holistic approaches offer unprecedented opportunities for meeting the demands of the growing population. Transformation of our nation's agricultural systems can ensure continued productivity growth, while conserving natural resources and minimizing the environmental footprint of agriculture. The transformation of food and agricultural systems also requires an investment in human capital to catalyze a secure and profitable global food system that meets the health and nutritional needs of people across rural and urban communities alike.
PART I-FUNDING OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION
1. Legislative Authority Section 2(b) of the Competitive, Special, and Facilities Research Grant Act (hereafter referred to as the Act) (7 U.S.C. 3157), as amended, authorizes the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI), a competitive grant program to provide funding for fundamental and applied research, education, and extension to address food and agricultural sciences in the following six 2018 Farm Bill priority areas: 1. Plant health and production and plant products; 2. Animal health and production and animal products; 3. Food safety, nutrition, and health; 4. Bioenergy, natural resources, and environment; 5. Agriculture systems and technology; and 6. Agriculture economics and rural communities.
2. Purpose and Priorities The purpose of AFRI is to support research, education, and extension work by awarding grants to solve key problems of local, regional, national, and global importance in sustaining conventional, organic, and urban agricultural systems. These include farm efficiency, profitability and sustainability, ranching, bioenergy, forestry, aquaculture, rural communities and entrepreneurship, human nutrition, mitigating impacts of biotic and abiotic constraints on food production, food safety, mitigating food waste and food loss, physical and social sciences, home economics and rural human ecology, biotechnology, and classical breeding. Through this support, AFRI advances knowledge in both fundamental and applied sciences important to agriculture. It also allows AFRI to support education and extension activities that deliver science-based knowledge to end users, allowing them to make informed, practical decisions. This AFRI RFA provides funding for integrated research, education, and extension projects.

SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURAL SYSTEMS
I would like to introduce Cannabis Science Inc (CSi-EDP) as an end-to-end technology solution provider for the Industrial Hemp Industry and other Agriculture related sectors.
We do see and realize the horrible traditional broken supply chain issues in the USA and Worldwide, because of this our businesses across America are flying blind with no real-time information for any inventory tracking or product pricings and negotiating abilities services they need, instantly.
We also realize the huge financial issue this glut has created in so many industries, including farmers, manufacturers, retailers and consumers of all sorts. Supply back up glut, expired goods going to waste every day, and consumers going without the required products because they have no real access instantly in real-time.
*** Targeting the Industrial Hemp Industry is one of our goals.
We provide this solution, real-time internet access to everything is the simple solution, with real-time access to vision, there is no more flying blind. Solutions through online access, real-time every time, inventory tracking coupled with instant online real-time multiple simultaneous negotiating technology. This solution is a clear and simple answer to most of these issues, however simple is not always easy just because it is simple. Our technology is completed and launched in Beta for demonstration and full application use now.
There is nothing else on the market near the robust power and client usability than our technology. It can be scaled for any size operations, including Worldwide real-time access, real-time inventory tracking, real-time pricing access, and multiple simultaneous real-time negotiations in every currency Worldwide. Real robust power.
The issues we see clearly as critical are the inabilities to track inventory in real time, to know who has what inventory at any given moment in time, to track pricing, delivery, expiry dates in real-time while instantly matching the required buyer and seller together so they can instantly negotiate privately over the internet all the required points in real-time.
Point by Point Industrial Hemp Solutions:
Centered on our CSi-EDP
We can modify the technology for specific industry applications.
We currently have 5 versions in development or launched.
Automobile and Real Estate versions are about to be launched as well.
These versions are in Beta Launch mode; we will do a full Media Blitz after we complete inventory loading and final CSR partnership testing.
We can bring all farmers, buyers, consumers, manufacturers to one online location, load every piece of inventory from every farmer or retailer across the country on the system, educate everyone on how to use it, and track everything in real-time simultaneously, with live information access for everyone approved in the system.
Inventory Expiry Dates
Multiple Simultaneous Real-time Negotiating (Privately or Public)
Price Tracking (Private or Public)
Again, our technology is ready to go, already launched, we can integrate any traditional transaction into an online experience for ease of business acumen and solutions.
Again, there is nothing on the market with this type of real-time tracking power.
Our Team consists of a number of experts in their field of interest, including but not limited to farmers, growers, scientists, manufacturers, buyers, educators, and consumers:
Raymond C. Dabney - Chairman
Robert Kane - President CFO
Greta Gaines - Product Development
Richard Dabney - Federal Government Liaison
Chief William Bills - Consultant (Hemp Agriculture)
A number of Nationwide industry Partners and associates.
We own the technology, and we are ready to provide instant access to modify requirements.
We believe we are already helping the Industry and we will continue regardless.
Thanks for your attention to this matter.
