National Predictive Modeling Tool Initiative (NPMTI) Request for Preproposals
The National Predictive Modeling Tool Initiative (NPMTI) is accepting proposals for 2021 and is interested in projects to develop research-based tools to help forecast incidences of diseases and mycotoxins affecting U.S. row crops.
The NPMTI offers a multi-year grant program that operates under the guidance of the USDA-Agricultural Research Service. Note that projects funded by NPMTI will be expected to share data to help with the overall development of the suite of predictive modeling tools.
The deadline for preproposal submission is September 9; note that this process is very straightforward.
