Call for proposals for creating abiotic stress tolerant bioengineered rice and wheat

USAID is seeking initial concept papers and then full applications to implement activities in support of the program to develop Abiotic Stress Tolerant Rice and Wheat using biotechnology as a tool. The geographic focus under consideration is USAID’s geographic definition of South Asia. Through this APS, USAID will facilitate the evaluation of selected technologies under field conditions in India, the most promising of which may be selected for further development and delivery to farmers in India and, eventually South Asia.
