RESEARCH PLAN/TIME FRAME
Outline of research objectives:
1) To produce cashew apple juice concentrate using different novel drying processes in an attempt to solve short-shelf life and post-harvest losses during transportation and storage of cashew apple fruits.
2) To determine the effect of these drying methods on the quality parameters of cashew apple juice concentrate so as to establish the best drying method that maintains the integrity of the components.
3)To determine the acceptability of cashew apple juice concentrate by sensory evaluation so as to measure consumer's perception on the product.
4)To evaluate the shelf-life stability of the cashew apple juice concentrates in order to know how long the product can be stored before spoilage.

I believe that you should also indicate that you will be doing several drying process comparison tests to help determine if one process is truly better than the other. Or, if a combination of several production procedures will deliver the best outcome for the prolonged shelf - life test for the cashew apple. You mentioned something about transportation and storage of the item, but in the objectives, you did not include any reference to those. You should investigate those procedures as well because the shelf-life can also be affected by improper storage, handling, and delivery systems. However, I think that the inclusion of those topics could make your research more difficult. Perhaps it would be better to reword that part of the proposal by simply removing the reference so as to focus solely on the production aspect of the fruit juice.
