The Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission, in partnership with the Oregon Sweet Cherry Commission, is accepting pre-proposals for new funding consideration for the 2016 Northwest Cherry Research Review. The Review will be held at the Red Lion Yakima Center, November 10-11, 2015.

The committee will take this information into consideration when reviewing pre-proposals. The research priority file can be downloaded by clicking on the link below.  NOTE:  There are 3 pages to the file - a summary of both WA and OR research priority ranking and individual WA and OR research priority ranking pages.

All pre-proposals must be submitted using the "Pre-proposal form" which can be found at Pre-proposal instructions and form. Complete the required information and submit via email to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by the deadline date.
