The California Department of Pesticide Regulation awarded Dr. John Lin, our Center's Automation program director, a grant aimed at promoting the understanding and adoption of UV-C light technology by California's strawberry growers. Lin will lead the research team in showcasing to growers the benefits and advantages of UV-C light as a non-chemical, sustainable alternative to pesticides for controlling pests such as powdery mildew and other potential arthropod pests (e.g., mites).
