The Center for Produce Safety (CPS) recently announced its annual call for preliminary research proposals and corresponding research priorities, which are focused on applied research.

In order to conduct applied research, scientists heavily rely on access to industry expertise, fields/facilities and samples; therefore, CPS is encouraging companies throughout the produce supply and value chain to learn about research collaboration. Trade and commodity organizations are also encouraged to participate.
