This conference is organized by The California Specialty Crops Council (CSCC).
CSCC is a coalition of commodity organizations which has joined forces to proactively approach issues concerning pest management. A major objective of the CSCC is to serve as a resource to regulators regarding crop production and pest management practices for California specialty crops. The CSCC also serves as a liaison to inform the grower community about important policy and regulatory issues which will potentially impact how their commodity is grown or marketed. Their mission is to foster a positive regulatory environment focusing on pest management and stewardship that supports the success of CSCC growers.
