This person would quickly be called upon by UC Farm Advisors and industry specialists for assistance in developing effective pest management programs. There is tremendous need for more options in implementing biological control strategies in our various agricultural systems. If our organic ag industries are going to continue to grow we need more biological control tools to try.

Biological control of arthropods has become an important part of IPM programs in perennial crops. It will be even more important as we go forward to produce crops with less pesticides. Consumer pressure for less pesticides is only going to increase. This position will be very important is address that issue. I urge you to fill this position.
