This position will be an essential addition to the UCCE strawberry effort currently underway. As one can see from the posted position description, the industry faces an overwhelming array of challenges of real consequence should solutions to them not be found. A specialist who investigates alternatives to fumigation and increased plant tolerance all the while keeping an eye on developments in labor not only in strawberries but also in the increasingly popular caneberries is exactly what is needed to enhance our efforts.

I strongly support the Small Fruit Production Specialist position.

I was hoping that this position would also assist with blueberry and other specialty berry production issues.
