Request for pre-proposals - pear

The Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission on behalf of Federal Marketing Order #927, is accepting pre-proposals for new funding consideration for the 2018 NW Pear Research Review. The Review will be held at the Confluence Technology Center (CTC) in Wenatchee February 15.

Members of the NW Pear research subcommittee have crafted a 2-page research priority document which can be viewed below. They will take this information into consideration when ranking pre-proposals.

All pre-proposals must be submitted using the pre-proposal form which can be found on this website  http://treefruitresearch.org/proposals-reports/pre-proposals. Complete the required information and submit via email to me by the deadline date.  Pre-proposal files will be compiled and distributed to research subcommittee members for review and vote. (Note: pre-proposal submissions are for new proposals only. Continuing and final reports do not require pre-proposal submission.) By December 19, researchers will be notified whether or not they are invited to present their full proposal at the Review.

Here are important dates to remember:
