Who is UC Cooperative Extension Glenn County?

Webite

The University of California's 64 Cooperative Extension (UCCE) offices are local problem-solving centers. More than 400 campus-based specialists and county-based farm, home, and youth advisors work as teams to bring the University's research-based information to Californians. UCCE is a full partnership of federal, state, county, and private resources linked in applied research and educational outreach. UCCE tailors its programs to meet local needs. UCCE's many teaching tools include meetings, conferences, workshops, demonstrations, field days, video programs, newsletters and manuals. Thousands of volunteers extend UCCE's outreach, assisting with the California 4-H Youth Development Program and Master Gardener Program.

The University of California Extension was first introduced to Glenn County in 1915.  However, the Agricultural Extension and Home Economics office was voted out of the county in 1927, only to be reinstated by voters in a November 1948 General Election. UCCE Glenn County provides programs tailored to meet the needs of county residents.  Extension services include exceptional 4-H and Master Gardener programs, as well as expert advice for farmers and growers.

Biological Control Offers Control of Eucalyptus Pest

Biological Control Offers Control of Eucalyptus Pest
The eucalyptus snout beetle, Gonipterus scutellatus, was discovered defoliating eucalyptus trees in Ventura County in March 1994. This insect has been introduced accidentally into several eucalyptus-growing regions around the world from Australia and has caused extensive damage wherever it has become established. Female beetles deposit hard brown egg capsules on shoots and young leaves. Both adults and larvae consume young and tender leaves, buds, and shoots. Extensive feeding completely defoliates trees and kills branches, while intermediate levels of defoliation retard growth and affect tree shape.
