Grant to a USA, Canada, or International nonprofit or for-profit organization, institute of higher education, or government-affiliated researcher for research to combat the effect climate change has on premium flavors of strawberries. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended for applications focused on increasing the scientific understanding of genetic and biochemical elements responsible for premium flavors, in addition to the environmental control of these elements.
Food production faces a range of challenges from climate change, competition for scarce resources and supply chain disruptions. One solution is controlled environment agriculture, which offers the ability to develop varieties of crops in controlled, non-traditional spaces. Controlled environment agriculture can also enhance desirable traits in crops.
A project funded through this RFA MUST identify:
Identification of the genetic components that give rise to premium flavors and the manipulation of chemicals responsible for that flavor through environmental control will be key. However, the science behind this is complex and PIP is interested in increasing understanding of how to produce premium flavors in strawberries. Ultimately, PIP is looking to fund projects that:
Premium flavors in this context are defined in this request as novel flavors with potential commercial value that are largely absent in modern commercial varieties, not the enhancement of flavor in most existing modern varieties.
