Technical Abstract: Comprising roughly two thirds of California’s Central Valley, the San Joaquin Valley is considered one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world. Agroecosystems in the San Joaquin Valley provide suitable habitat for populations of pests and disease vectors that affect the approximately 250 crops cultivated in the area. Innovative research at the USDA-ARS San Joaquin Valley Agricultural Sciences Center (SJVASC) increases the productivity, quality, and marketability of crops by solving problems in an environmentally sustainable manner. This includes investigations on agricultural pest and disease vector control. Examples of agricultural pest and disease vector control research at the SJVASC will be described during this presentation.
