NEW FOR GROWERS!
Crop production video series for Central Valley strawberry growers. Produced for Southeast Asian farmers in California by the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources with support from the National Research Initiative of the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service, USDA.
Crop Production and Pest Management Slide Sets. These user-friendly slide sets were created for Southeast Asian and other limited resource strawberry growers by Chuck Ingels, Erica Chernoh, Jennifer Sowerwine, and Jenny Broome. The slide sets were developed under a USDA National Research Initiative grant, which was led by Jennifer Sowerwine, UC Berkeley. These slide sets were not peer-reviewed, and some information may be out of date. Always follow pesticide labels. Consult the UC IPM Strawberry Pest Management Guidelines for current information.
