The application window for the next round of the CRAFT New Plantings Program is expected to open October 1, 2023. Please check back closer to that date for additional program and application information. 

The CRAFT New Planting Program focuses on grower-driven, large-scale field trials that evaluate treatments and technologies that have shown promise in the laboratory, when utilized in real-world settings. Experimental designs are developed in conjunction with the CRAFT Technical Working Group and staff to allow for the collection of viable data, while enabling growers to execute the trials within their standard growing practices. The CRAFT New Planting Program is a six-year commitment and requires grower participants to provide production and yield data in exchange for a participation payment.
