The Horticulture Innovation Lab (previously called Hort CRSP) has collaborated with exceptional researchers who have expertise not only in fruit and vegetable production, but also in plant pathology, soil science, sociology, postharvest losses, agricultural education, tropical plants, resource economics, engineering and more. We continue to further strengthen the capacity of our research network with new collaborators. Each of our projects has partners from developing countries and is led by a principal investigator at a U.S. public university.
The Horticulture Innovation Lab is managed by a team at the University of California, Davis, with funding from USAID. The program’s primary partner institutions are North Carolina State University, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa and University of Florida.
Each Horticulture Innovation Lab project also engages partners in developing countries, including researchers, private enterprise, non-governmental organizations, national agricultural research institutes, and universities.
