Texas Nursery & Landscape Association Education and Research Foundation Issues Call for Proposals
The Texas Nursery & Landscape Association Education and Research Foundation is issuing a call for proposals for nursery/landscape research for the 2005-2006 granting year. Research proposals must address on of the following:
- Evapotranspiration data for landscape plants by Texas regions
- Efficient delivery systems for landscape irrigation
- Recycling and reuse of water in horticulture production facilities
Proposals sponsored by several departments, colleges or interdisciplinary groups are encouraged. It is expected that funding per proposal, will not exceed $5,000, although proposals with several sponsors may ask for up to $10,000.
The Foundationís primary support goes toward applied research, because applied projects answer specific problems, afford immediate applicable results and require resources within the Foundationís capability to provide. However, basic research projects that add to the industryís body of knowledge do receive consideration, particularly where funds are highly leveraged and the research addresses specific industry needs.
For grant applications and further information, call (800) 880-0343, or visit the TNLA Web site at www.tnlaonline.org. Deadline for submission is Feb. 24, 2006.
