The Vegetable and Strawberry Pathology Program aims to understand the biology and ecology of pathogens of these crops and to apply this knowledge toward the development of management practices that improve the economic, environmental, and social sustainability of production of vegetables and strawberry in California.

2017.09.28 | Natalie has begun pursuit of an M.S. in the Plant Pathology Graduate Program. Thanks go to Natalie for her hard work as an Assistant Specialist at getting the Program going!
2017.08.24 | We are part of a project just funded by the USDA Specialty Crops Research Initiative on disease resistant strawberry breeding! The project is led by the UC Davis Strawberry Breeding Program and includes collaborators at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, UC Davis, UC Cooperative Extension, University of Florida, and UC Santa Cruz. See the press release or Research for details. Looking forward to this project!

2017.07.01 | Along with collaborators at UC Cooperative Extension, UC Davis, and USDA-ARS, we were awarded a grant from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation to study site-specific, precision management of soilborne pathogens of strawberry. See Research for details. Excited to get to work on this!
2017.06.27 | UC Riverside and UC Davis hosted the 2017 APS Pacific Division Meeting at the Mission Inn. See photos below from the field trip, which included visits to citrus, a nursery, dates (and some delicious date shakes), landscape trees, and the Citrus Clonal Protection Program.
