Full members exprience the full benefits from Tree Improvement.
All NCSUCTIP full members must participate in the selection, breeding, and testing program in a standard and, to the extent possible, equitable way. Full members must also participate in the research of the NCSUCTIP. This participation sets the floor level of progress and accomplishment for the program. This is where Cooperators truly cooperate.
In return organizations can use the facilities, information and research data derived from TIP to invest in genetics research and development beyond their participation in NCSUCTIP projects have the right to the information, results, and material obtained from the additional investments. While sharing the results of such investments with the NCSUCTIP is appreciated, it is certainly not required.
