2018 PRE-PROPOSALS INVITED TO SUBMIT FULL PROPOSALS

 

The Mission of the Citrus Research and Development Foundation is to “Advance disease and production research and product development activities to insure the survival and competitiveness of Florida’s citrus growers through innovation”. The purpose of this CRDF call for pre-proposals is to support the Foundation’s mission by addressing key industry needs. 

Questions and research priorities were discussed during citrus grower input sessions, researcher brainstorming sessions, and from the recently completed National Academy of Sciences (NAS) study. These were developed into priorities  for the two separate 2018 CRDF RFPs (RMC-18 & CPDC-18). These research priorities were selected and approved by the Commercial Product Delivery Committee (CPDC), the Research Management Committee (RMC) and the CRDF Board of Directors, all of which are composed of individuals from the citrus industry.
