The Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission is developing a new tree fruit technology roadmap and needs grower input to help determine the industry’s top technology-related priorities. 

The commission has engaged industry leaders and Tenacious Ventures, an ag tech innovation firm, to lead the development of the roadmap. But more importantly, according to a news release, it needs as much feedback as possible from the industry. 

Five minutes of your time can help determine the future of the Washington tree fruit industry. To answer a few simple questions and submit additional comments, go to: The survey will close Sept. 22.

“Your perspective is invaluable, and your involvement will play a crucial role in the development of the roadmap,” according to the release. “Please forward/share this link with any Washington tree fruit colleagues who are interested in the future of our industry.”
