Funding for Nematode Control in Latin America – pre-proposals due April 1

A $450,000 grant is available to U.S. university scientists for research on nematode control in fruits and vegetables in Honduras, Guatemala and/or Haiti.

This call for pre-proposals comes from the Horticulture Innovation Lab, a program led by UC Davis with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development. The Horticulture Innovation Lab builds international partnerships for fruit and vegetable research to improve livelihoods in developing countries.

Brief pre-proposals are due by April 1.

Nematodes are critical pests for horticultural crops in Central America and the Caribbean, causing smallholder farmers to lose crops or face quarantine restrictions. Successful research projects should result in practical recommendations for smallholder farmers.

An optional webinar will be held March 7, for questions and answers about this opportunity.

Full details are available on the Horticulture Innovation Lab website. The Horticulture Innovation Lab is housed at UC Davis.
