As EH Advisor in San Joaquin County, I strongly support this position. There has been a significant gap in coverage that has adversely affected the clientele in this area, and with the retirement in Tulare/Kings County this will become an even greater loss of trusted support and information for these industries across four counties. Additionally, the many UC Master Gardener volunteers in these counties are in need of academic supervision and program direction if they are to continue to effectively reach the general public with research-based information through their thousands of hours of volunteer outreach.
I support the critical need for this and other EH advisor positions in California. Production horticulture needs the technical support of Extension services, particularly given current drought and economic pressures. The horticulture industry as a whole relies on an active Extension to provide applied research, objective guidance, and best management practices.
