University research strengths/ areas of expertise related to activities in Consortium

UC Davis’ principal participation in the consortium so far has been through the Rural Education and Extension sub-group and we participated in the Universidad de LaSalle Utopia Rapid Rural Appraisal project lead by Washington State University. We are also a member of the Water and Natural Resources Management group and initiated a group in Integrated Pest Management for Vegetable Crops.
