The deadline is approaching to secure a funding opportunity for faculty or staff with PI status in the departments of Agronomy, Horticulture and Plant Pathology:
The 2017 call for proposals to develop cultivars or other plant germplasm was released in May. Proposals are due Aug. 4 by 4:30 p.m.
Approximately $100,000 per year will be available to support the development of cultivars and other plant germplasm, and for which rights are or will be assigned to WARF. A committee with representation from WARF, WCIA, CALS, and CALS Departments of Agronomy, Horticulture and Plant Pathology will evaluate the proposals for germplasm to be developed, the development tasks and the budget requested. Development tasks may be carried out by WCIA as appropriate.
