From an article by Amanda Garris, Researchers awarded $4.5M for next generation grapes (Cornell Chronicle, 10/11/2011):

“The projects, one led by Cornell grape breeder Bruce Reisch, professor of horticulture, and the other by senior extension associate Tim Martinson, take complementary approaches to a common problem: how to make grape breeding more efficient, since new grape varieties can take more than 20 years to breed and evaluate and much longer to reach commercial success. The projects are funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture Specialty Crop Research Initiative (SCRI).”
