I. OBJECTIVES AND TIMETABLE

A. Restate objectives and timetable for all years as stated in original funded proposal. Do not simply refer to original proposal.

B. Note and justify revisions in original objectives and/or timetable.

II. RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS IN FUNDING LETTER

Please respond to specific questions or comments of the reviewers as noted in your funding letter for 2007-08. Restate the question or comments and give an answer. See also IX.

III. LAY SUMMARY OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Summarize the accomplishments of your project to date and especially your progress in the last year. Where possible, relate accomplishments to practical applications for growers or pest managers in the field. Do not restate the goals of your project or present a lengthy justification. The objectives (above) and this 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 250 words on one double-spaced page.

IV. 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…."
