Extension and Outreach

Our extension efforts focus on creating awareness and in-depth understanding of the issues concerned with spray application engineering, developing new and evaluating existing practices and technologies in agricultural applications engineering, improving the efficacy and/or efficiency of various cropping systems with a focus on pest and disease management as well as minimizing the impact of agricultural practices and materials on air and water quality. Extension of knowledge include leading the planning and coordination of extension education in application engineering in perennial specialty crop systems. Extension activities of our personnel consist of participation in collaborative educational activities and presentation of relevant research-based information at grower meetings, field days, tours, web conferences, UCANR publications, peer-review journals and an appropriate mix of contemporary and emerging electronic educational media.
