CRAFT Program applications will be ranked and growers selected to participate by the CRAFT Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors in a blind selection process
Growers selected for contracts will meet with CRAFT representatives prior to contract signing in order to ensure the participant understands all terms and conditions. Upon execution of the contract, growers will be responsible for carrying out all production-related activities, providing required data, and allowing selected research partners and CRAFT Foundation, Inc. staff access to their groves. Raw data will be inputted into the USDA/ARS data management tool and will be available to the public. Grower privacy will be protected through the assignment of an identifier number.
Here is an example of the type of data a grower will be expected to provide (Linked document coming soon).
