We conduct research trials in commercial fields with local grower cooperators. Our goals are to improve profitability and solve pest management (weed, disease, nematode, and insect pests) problems affecting local vegetable producers. Research-based information is extended to clientele via grower meetings, newsletters, field consultations, telephone calls, and field meetings.
