This is a critical position to Southern California and beyond. I'd like to add strawberry to the small fruit mix - our # 1 crop in all coastal counties that did not have pathologist in the region since Paulus retired and Gubler left strawberries (8-10 years ago). Cal Strawberry Commission sees it as top priority and the only CE person who handles this giant load is Koike at Monterey.
The crop assignment is too narrowly defined. This position should be expanded to include black berries and kiwifruit. Blackberries and kiwifruit are significant industries and deserved to be addressed also.
