Noble Research Institute, Ardmore, Oklahoma, the nation’s largest nonprofit agricultural research organization, has been given a 2024 Regenerative Agriculture Research Grant from the Greenacres Foundation, Cincinnati, Ohio-based nonprofit to advance its ongoing pecan-focused research.

The $295,000 grant was awarded to aid the organization’s study of pecan silvopasture and measure improved soil health’s impact on building profitable and resilient systems. In line with Noble’s goal of regenerating 164 million acres of United States grazing land by 2040, this three-year project will contribute to the continuing research focused on the impact of implementing regenerative practices for achieving a balanced and resilient ecosystem.
