Speaker Highlight: Dr. Pam Marrone
Dr. Marrone from Chestnut Bio Advisors is a featured presenter at the 2022 Sustainable Ag Expo. Her talk is titled "Biologicals for pest management and plant health – the latest on the market, new developments and grower adoption." California continues to restrict chemical pesticides, fewer new chemicals are coming to market and new pests and diseases spread. As such, along with pressure to increase sustainability, new pest management tools are needed. Many biologicals are registered and available as effective alternatives but there is still work to do on understanding how to use them based on their novel modes of action in integrated programs.
