If possible, Ag Research Station Project Information Research Forms (PIRFs) should be submitted by January 31. PIRF’s may be sent at any time of the year but submission by January 31 is helpful. Having your project submitted by the deadline will give our Station Superintendents the most opportunity to meet your needs. For research projects awaiting funding or other approval, please submit a PIRF with a note explaining the research project is pending.Complete a Project Information Request Form
To submit a PIRF, visit the ARS website and click on “For Researchers” in the task bar at the top of the home page. Click on the Project Information Request Form and follow the instructions for submitting a PIRF to the appropriate stations. The form is reviewed by the superintendent and ARS Director-they sign and date (electronically) and a copy of the PIRF is sent back to the PI.
