I heard about this on the radio, thought I'd pass this along.

Tractor Rollbar | Rollover Protection | National ROPS Rebate Program

Excerpt from their website:

What does the NTSC do?

To fulfill its mission, the National Tractor Safety Coalition is currently working to reduce tractor overturn fatalities through the expansion of current state-based ROPS Rebate Programs into a National ROPS Rebate Program. The Coalition is working to raise sufficient funds for rebates, making the National ROPS Rebate Program available to all US farmers who wish to retrofit tractors.

What has already been done?

More than a decade's worth of research has gone into preparing for the NRRP. A complete bibliography of peer-reviewed research documenting the early stages of program development (qualitative studies with farmers and the development of the program structure), through the pilot testing of the ROPS Rebate Program in various states, and finally the development of the National Tractor Safety Coalition and efforts to scale-up the ROPS Rebate Program can be found HERE. As these efforts were first introduced by the Northeast Center for Occupational Health and Safety: Agriculture Forestry and Fishing (NEC), and as the administration of the National ROPS Rebate Program lies within this organization, much of the research has been conducted by this group. However, the contributions of the many partners involved in this effort, both past and present, have been invaluable to the success of this program.
