UC IPM manages Pierce’s disease research grants program

The UC Pierce’s Disease Research Grants Program issued a request for proposals in November for 2011–2014 project funding. This request and the proposal review process are being conducted jointly with the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Pierce’s Disease Control Program. UC IPM Director Kassim Al-Khatib began managing this UC program Dec. 1.

Funded by the USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture, the program sponsors projects aimed at controlling Pierce’s disease, a potentially devastating disease of grapevines, and glassy winged sharpshooter, the insect that carries it. Total research funding for the UC program varies from about $1 to $2 million annually.

Professor George Bruening directed this program from 2006 through November.
