Support Strawberry Center, Cal Poly

Alfredo Villicana-Bedolla visits Center and presents on Integrated Pest Management

Alfredo Villicana-Bedolla (Senior Regulatory and Compliance Manager) (right) and Joshua Beltran (Lab Supervisor) (left) of Reiter Affiliated Companies gave a lecture (24 April 2024) at Cal Poly on "Integrated Pest Management" (IPM) in berries. They covered the use of biologicals in pest management, including predatory mites, parasitoids, Trichoderma, and a grower’s playbook for spotted wing Drosophila (SWD). Our students consistently receive first-hand knowledge and insights from some of the strawberry industry's most experienced and seasoned professionals.

Thank you to Alfredo and Joshua for making the trip to Cal Poly and imparting your IPM knowledge and experience to our students!
