The Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission is accepting pre-proposals for new funding consideration for the 2020 Apple Horticulture/Postharvest (AHP) and Apple Crop Protection (ACP) Research Reviews.  The meetings will be held Wednesday, January 29th (AHP) and Thursday, January 30th (ACP) at the Yakima Convention Center.

All pre-proposals must be submitted using the preproposal form which is on this website:  Pre-proposal_form.pdf.  Review the instructions, complete the pre-proposal form and submit by the deadline date. Pre-proposal submissions will be compiled, given an anonymous identifier and distributed to the committees and commissioners for review and ranking. (Note: pre-proposal submissions are for new proposals only. Continuing and final reports do not require pre-proposal submission.) By November 22, researchers will be notified if they are invited to present their full proposal at the Review.

The AHP and ACP committees have updated their research priority lists and are attached for reference.  Committee members will take these research priorities into consideration when ranking pre-proposals.

Here are important deadlines to remember:

  1. Pre-proposals submission: November 4 – 5:00pm PST
  2. Submission of approved proposals, continuing & final reports: January 6– 5:00pm PST
