2016 NPGA Funded Research
2017 NPGA Request for Research Proposals
The NPGA has more than $450,000 to distribute for the 2017 crop year. Proposals are due in the NPGA office no later than January 23, 2017 and can be sent via email or mailed. (To ensure that your proposal is received via email, please include a delivery/read receipt.) email@example.com
The NPGA research committee will meet to review the proposals and make funding determinations in February in conjunction with the USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council research review. Each review will be held separately, however it is our hope that this will be a great way to facilitate a more transparency with the organizations, committees and applicants. Detailed information regarding the dates will be posted at a later time.
As in years past, each individual submitting proposals will be given an opportunity to briefly discuss their proposed project via conference call/WebEx with the NPGA research committee. Recipients of funding will be contacted immediately following the meeting. Please feel free to distribute this to all interested parties.
Each year, the Northern Pulse Growers Association research committee reviews proposals for the current crop year based on established priorities.
The Northern Pulse Growers Association is seeking proposals for dry pea, lentil, chickpea, fava bean or lupin research in the areas of breeding/genetics, crop management and itilization. The NPGA currently has more than TBA to distribute towards research projects for the upcoming crop year.
Deadline: January 23, 2017 Deadline: 5:00 p.m. (Central Time)
