This program provides cost share grants to conduct market promotion, market research and development, value-added processing and new technology demonstration projects. The grant funds are made possible with the interest on the Agricultural Marketing Loan Fund. The ADG program was also created in 1996, as a companion to the AMLF. It is capitalized by the interest earned on the original bond proceeds.
