New Grower Guidelines for Anthracnose on Strawberry Now Available

Attached is the latest iteration of the grower guidelines a number of us at UC Cooperative Extension have written and have had published by the California Strawberry Commission.

Super timely since planting is right around the corner, this piece on anthracnose in strawberry caused by the pathogen Colletotrichum , was written by myself, Steven Koike and Oleg Daugovish.  It was then reviewed by our strawberry science colleagues Gerald Holmes, Kelly Ivors and Jenny Broome.  Translation into Spanish (attached below) done by the Commission's Ariel Zajdband into pitch perfect Spanish in a single hour.  The Commission's Joy Jacobs kept the project moving and she and Mercy Olmstead brought it over the finish line. 

I'm really very proud of this team effort to put the latest settled science on a serious disease into the hands of growers, PCA's and industry people. I am privileged to work with such a great team of people!
