Specialty Crop Program

Increase your global market visibility & competitiveness

The North Dakota Trade Office encourages all North Dakota specialty crop companies to participate in our Specialty Crop Program. NDTO's Specialty Crop Program is a reimbursement program providing funding to eligible business concerns participating in NDTO-led trade missions with a specialty crop focus. The program intends to increase the global market visibility and competitiveness of the North Dakota specialty crop sector. Specialty crops included in this program are peas, beans, lentils, confectionary sunflowers, and more.

Funding for International Export Expansion for ND Specialty Crops was made possible by the US Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service through a grant [DA02325 ACT 07]. Its contents are solely the authors' responsibility and do not necessarily represent the official views of the USDA.
