This online database was developed with funding from a grant, “Developing Internet Resources for California Specialty Crops” awarded by the California Department of Food and Agriculture in 2011-2012.
The project is a cooperative effort of Carlos Crisosto, Cooperative Extension Specialist, Department of Plant Sciences, UC Davis and Director, UC Fruit & Nut Research and his staff: Brooke Jacobs, Postdoctoral Research Scientist, Janet Zalom, Computer Resource Specialist and Connie Arana and Steven Nguyen, Student Assistants.
Technical assistance by Bryon Noel, Programmer, UC ANR Communications Information Service Center and Mike McGraw, Principal Repro Technician, UC Davis Repro Graphics, are gratefully acknowledged.
This work was undertaken in the fall of 2011 with the acquisition of the Annual Research Reports, in print and electronic formats, from the California Tree Fruit Agreement, archived over a number of years. Completion of the project is anticipated in 2012, however, as earlier reports become available, these will be added to the database. Anyone with copies of these early reports in their personal libraries, and amenable to lending these for scanning, are encouraged to contact us.
