Apple Horticulture/Postharvest and Apple Crop Protection - Requests for Pre-proposals
The Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission is accepting pre-proposals for new funding consideration for the 2017 Apple Horticulture/Postharvest and Apple Crop Protection Research Reviews. The Reviews will be held at the Red Lion Yakima Center, January 25-27. (Apple Horticulture and Postharvest will be held January 25-26 and Crop Protection will immediately follow) Both apple committees completed ratings of research priority needs for the coming year. The committees will take this information into consideration when reviewing pre-proposals. The results of these surveys can be viewed by clicking on the links below.
