Feedback
  • The Environmental Stewardship Tour was very
    enlightening and encouraging. It is valuable to
    be in the field and see what growers are doing to
    meet the challenges they face in the orchard,
    regulatory and otherwise. And I hope that when
    they are speaking about forming partnerships, the
    Regional Board will be included in those
    discussions and those partnerships.
  • Pamela Creedon, Executive Director, Central
    Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board

Feedback
  • Thank you for inviting me to the Environmental
    Stewardship Tour at Hunter Farms. I found the
    tour to be very informative and worthwhile. As a
    farmer, it is great to see that your organization
    has a commitment to the environment. The job that
    your organization does is extremely important and
    everybody should be commended for the work they
    do.
  • John Pedrozo, Distrist One Supervisor Merced
    County Board of Supervisors

Feedback
  • Thanks for an extremely informative day on
    current almond production and pest management
    practices. We also appreciated the opportunity to
    discuss the nature of the Department of Pesticide
    Regulation's goals and regulatory issues with
    almond growers, researchers and representatives
    from other state, local and federal agencies.
    There is much potential for collaboration to
    protect our environment while supporting a
    vibrant economy. Thank you.
  • Nan Gorder, Ag Program Supervisor Department of
    Pesticide Regulation

Feedback
  • I think its important for me to come out and
    spend time with growers and see how they do
    things. It gives me the perspective that pest
    management is only one slot, one part of what
    they do.
  • Mark Robertson, Env. Research Scientist
    Department of Pesticide Regulation
