BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Agricultural Products Utilization Commission is funding six projects this quarter, for a total of nearly $400,000.

The group better known as APUC funds developers of North Dakota farm products. The money is typically used for research, marketing, farm diversification, ag tourism and technology.

The largest grant this quarter is going to Amity Technology, LLC of Fargo. The company is receiving $162,000 to build a demonstration plant that could lead to a process that converts agricultural waste into industrial chemicals.

The awards also include $119,500 to two Bismarck residents planning to launch the state’s first cold weather hardy grapevines nursery.
