Here are some new opportunities for tree producers from UF Forestry Breeding Research...
Florida Foundation Seed Producers, Inc. (FFSP) is announcing this Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) for the exclusive licensing opportunity of the 'G1', 'G2', 'G3', 'G4', and 'G5' eucalyptus grandis cultivars. These cultivars were developed by the forestry breeding program at the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences School of Forest Resources and Conservation.
For more information about these eucalyptus cultivars, please click here. http://ffsp.net/resources/ITN12-03-07.pdf
FFSP encourages technology transfer to be an open process among all interested external parties. Because this germplasm may be exclusively licensed, the award of this exclusive license will be handled through our ITN process. If you or your company are unfamiliar with the ITN process, please click here for more information.
There are three (3) principles used to guide the entire FFSP ITN process. In order of importance, these principles are:
For the good of the State of Florida and its people;
For the good of the University of Florida and IFAS; and
For the good of the breeding program and the breeders.
These three (3) principles are to be addressed at all levels of discussion in the ITN process.
All interested parties are encouraged to submit comments and/or proposals. In order to submit comments and/or proposals, you must first complete and submit the ITN Acknowledgment Form to FFSP via fax or mail (Fax - (877) 839-9162, Mail - 1059 McCarty Hall D, PO Box 110200, Gainesville, FL 32611-0200). The ITN Acknowledgment Form can be found at the end of the ITN Announcement Packet. After FFSP has received your signed Acknowledgment Form, your company will be sent a questionnaire, which may be used as a template for your proposal.
All proposals and comments must be received by FFSP before 12PM EST on Friday, June 1, 2012. Proposals and comments received after this time will not be accepted or considered.
