The Peanut Collaborative Research Support Program

The current Peanut CRSP Grant began in 1996 with program adjustments made in 2001 based on the 2000 EEP Review. The Peanut CRSP uses a value-chain approach developed around five thematic or cluster areas: Food Safety and Nutrition; Production Efficiency; Socioeconomics and Policy; Post-Harvest and Utilization; and Information, Training and Technology Transfer and Management. Program content assured that the Title XII expectations of impact in the host (developing) countries with benefits to the United States (U.S.A.) would be achieved. Plans were developed to resolve major constraints to the host countries and U.S.A. peanut sector and to ensure that social and gender issues were addressed.
