TITLE:

EXOTIC/INVASIVE PESTS REVIEW PANEL:

INVESTIGATORS:

KEYWORDS:

For our database, briefly characterize this project by specifying the following:

Crop(s), Site(s), or Habitat
Exotic pest(s) and/or diseases (include common and scientific name)
Additional important keywords

I. OBJECTIVES

  1. List objectives as stated in the originally funded proposal. Do not simply refer to the original proposal.
  2. Note revisions to original objectives.

II. SUMMARY OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Summarize the accomplishments of your project in lay terms. Where possible, relate accomplishments to practical applications for growers or pest managers in the field. Do not restate the objectives of your project or present a lengthy justification.  The objectives (above) and summary will appear in the UC IPM research grants database on the Web, so express yourself in lay terms and avoid technical jargon. Limit the summary to one double-spaced page.

III. RESEARCH SUCCESS STATEMENTS

In a few sentences, detail the benefits of this research program to end users (e.g., growers, land managers, residential users). This is different from the lay summary. The summary covers the results from the past year; the Research Success Statements should quantify what the research means to the end users, e.g., "this research provides (end users) with the essential tools to manage…."

IV. TECHNICAL SUMMARY

Summarize accomplishments over the life of the project as an abstract. Stress results, unusual new findings, and potential or realized use of the results in the field.

V. BUDGET

List your total budget (not detailed budget) for each year of the project using the format listed below. Please include all years in which funding was received.

Project Year First Year Second Year Third Year
Fiscal year (9/1 - 8/31) (___ - ___) (___ - ___) (___ - ___)
Total Budget amount amount amount

VI. IMPLEMENTATION IN THE FIELD

In one to two paragraphs, summarize what steps have been taken to transfer the technology developed by the project to the field. What technology or concepts were developed by the project and how specifically will they be implemented?

VII. RECOMMENDATIONS

What additional research is needed to fill data gaps and implement final technologies or concepts developed by this project? If the research were to be taken a step further, what suggestions or concerns (pitfalls?) can you pass on to other investigators?

VIII. PUBLICATIONS AND PRESENTATIONS

In vitae form, please list published, in press, submitted, and in preparation technical (journal) or popular articles resulting from this project. Separately, list presentations given that relate to the project.
