The need is apparent in the agricultural community that an Extension Advisor to Madera/ Merced County should be filled. Our communities are facing strategic challenges with the ongoing water issues and compliance to various state initiatives to reduce pesticide use and air pollution restrictions. The UC ANR has lead the California Agricultural Community and we need their assistance now.

This position will provide support for major commodity producers and small farmers in various fruit crops. This position is needed with the impending retirement of Maxwell Norton, expanded acreage of fruit crops, and developing small fruit farms across the three counties. Personally- this position will help our office handle these calls, increasing our effectiveness in program delivery.

As a peach grower in Merced County I rely on the extension service to help solve problems
I encounter with growing the trees. This position is critical to our area as we need the latest research to be available to help in our decision making. Orchards represent a long term investment for a grower, and having a extension service partner available to help in the planning process before planting is vital to our wellbeing and the wellbeing of our community.
