Smartphone-Tablet-PC with apps
The University of California Cooperative Extension’s Strawberry and Vegetable Crops and Affiliated Integrated Pest Management Advisor, Surendra Dara created the first free IPM info smart phone app for agricultural professionals.

This app provides one-touch access to information about the biology, symptoms of damage, and management options for pests and diseases with associated photos. Links in the management section take users to the University of California Integrated Pest Management website for detailed information on control options. The disease section has information on the symptoms and management options along with useful pictures. For more information on this free app go to:

The creation of this app is an example of how Agriculture Natural Resources is making a difference for Californians. For more information on the UC Delivers story about the IPMinfo app, please visit:
