Funded Projects

Research Review

The 2023-24 Northwest Cherry and Stone Fruit Research Review will be held November 7, 2023 in Yakima, WA 
More details to come. Please check back later for the location and agenda.

The Oregon Sweet Cherry Commission together with the WA Tree Fruit Research Commission invites all interested parties to attend this year’s NW Cherry and Stone Fruit Research Review. This hybrid event will feature continuing and final research project reports on Little Cherry Disease, Spotted Wing Drosophila, Horticulture, Breeding, Mildew and more. Attendance is free and open to the public.

4 Washington and Oregon Pesticide Credits available.

There is currently an active Request for Preproposals (RFP) for NW Cherry and Stone Fruit. Preproposals must be submitted by August 30, 2023. Research Priorities can be accessed here. Please be sure to read throughouly.
 

The form to submit a preproposal can be found here: https://treefruitresearch.org/proposal-process-instructions-and-documents/pre-proposal/instructions/
