    Proposal summary:

    Missouri Northern Pecan Growers market pecans from native trees that are grown in the northern region of the country. Collaboration between a cutting edge ethnobotanist and our farmer grower base, will allow us to better define our production base. We intend to utilize this research in the development of geographic identification four our products, which we believe will result in significant returns to our farmers in the long term.
