Environmental guardians honored

Four UC IPM leaders—advisors Peter Goodell and Carolyn Pickel, associate director and entomologist Mary Louise Flint, and associate director Joyce Strand—were recognized at the Sixth International IPM Symposium in Portland, Ore., in March for their contributions to the Grower Incentives for IPM Team Project.

Working across institutions, agencies, and agricultural and environmental communities, the team launched educational activities to support Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) field staff and growers interested in implementing IPM practices. In California, UC IPM's Pest Management Guidelines for more than 40 crops, many of which also include year-round programs, were central to the effort.
