Past AFE-funded research helps your flowers stay healthier longer!

If you have a floriculture research project that needs to be funded, AFE wants to help in securing funding for your project. AFE is now calling for research pre-proposal applications for 2015-2016 funding, due no later than June 1, 2015.
AFE’s Production and Post-Harvest Research Committee has identified three high priority research areas for the current pre-proposal cycle that are relevant to all segments of the floral industry:

Research projects can last from one to three years and any reasonable but justifiable budget will be considered. For the current 2014-2015 cycle, AFE will fund more than $250,000 in research.
Be sure to peruse AFE’s full list of scientific research priorities and the research proposal general application timeline for more details about the pre-proposal.

Final research reports from previously funded AFE projects are available free of charge, and a list of currently funded research is also available online.
