With this acquisition, LiveTrends will add 20 acres of indoor houseplant production space and a team of 60 people. However, this new entity will operate completely autonomously from LiveTrends and under a new name – The Urban Jungle Group The Urban Jungle Group will honor all contracts with existing customers and will start adding new plant varieties in time. The new company will continue to operate without any changes. It will include the same management team, but it will receive marketing and infrastructure help from LiveTrends. “The main reasons why we chose to partner with Plant Marketing are the quality of their growing operations, and most importantly, the quality of their management team. We believe that this addition to the LiveTrends family will deliver exceptional synergy between both companies and it will be very beneficial to our supply chain,” Bisser Georgiev, founder and CEO of LiveTrends said. The Urban Jungle Group will continue to grow tropical foliage plants, and some designer foliage upgrades will be sold under the LiveTrends brand umbrella. This is done with the goal of preserving the high design standards of the LiveTrends brand, and at the same time, maintaining the competitive price nature of the Urban Jungle basic plants. For more information, please contact Bisser Georgiev at bisser@livetrendsdesign.com The California Department of Food and Agriculture has awarded funding for one project in the initial funding cycle for the Proactive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Solutions grant program. The project, titled “Proactive Biological Control of Spotted Lantern Fly, Lycorma delicatula (Hemiptera: Fulgoridae)” was awarded $543,936. The three-year project will develop biological control agents for spotted lanternfly, an invasive pest that has not yet arrived in California but is spreading rapidly across the eastern US. This pest has the potential to affect many high-value California crops including grapes, walnuts, avocados, and pistachios. The project will piggyback on work that is already being conducted on the pest in the eastern US and abroad. Project leads are Dr. Mark Hoddle (UC Riverside) and Dr. Kent Daane (UC Berkeley). The biological control agent is a small (3 mm) stingless wasp, native to China, that parasitizes the eggs of the spotted lanternfly. The goal of the Proactive IPM Solutions grant program is to anticipate which exotic pests are likely to arrive in California and to identify and test IPM strategies that can be rapidly implemented if the pests become established in California. CDFA is responsible for preventing and mitigating invasive pests in California. Techniques resulting from the Proactive IPM Solutions Program will allow for rapid deployment of future management plans. Detailed information on this program, including the application process and application requirements, is available at: www.cdfa.ca.gov/oefi/opca/proactive-ipm.html CDFA’s Office of Pesticide Consultation and Analysis (OPCA) received an annual appropriation of $544,000 for this research program as part of the 2018-2019 budget. OPCA provides consultation to the California Department of Pesticide Regulation on pesticide regulatory matters. The offices’ consultative activities focus on potential pesticide regulatory impacts and pest management alternatives that may mitigate or prevent such impacts on production agriculture. OPCA staff are also involved in other projects relating to pesticide use and alternatives. Information on the Office of Pesticide Consultation and Analysis is available at: www.cdfa.ca.gov/oefi/opca/   Arborjet has launched TREE-äge R10 to help arborists reduce tree pest damage. When used with Arborjet’s QUIK-jet AIR, field studies demonstrate that R10 injects three times faster than generic brands and reduces tree pest damage significantly better than competitive products. This is particularly useful when injecting conifers and other diffuse porous trees that typically take more time to inject. It can be used on trees grown in residential and commercial landscapes, golf courses, parks, municipal areas and areas of greater environmental sensitivity. R10 facts: • TREE-äge R10, available in a pint size, uses less than half the original TREE-äge, and delivers significantly reduced injection times • Similar to the original TREE-äge, offers 2 years of protection (for most listed pests) and controls more than 40 pests including: bark beetles, emerald ash borer, and gypsy moth • Works in all Arborjet equipment • For use by commercially licensed applicators For more information, please visit: https://arborjet.com/ Following a detailed discussion Friday with Rep. Abigail Spanberger, D-7th District, on the need for immigration reform to address workforce demands, representatives of a family-run greenhouse operation in Orange County called for increased efforts in public education to steer students toward careers in horticulture. “We need skilled people, we need managerial people, we need head growers and propagators in our industry and to reach into at a low enough level in the school system to position horticulture more attractively,” said Craig Regelbrugge, a policy analyst and lobbyist with Washington, D.C. based AmericanHort. “We don’t need everybody to graduate from college with a four-year degree anymore. Trades ought to be honorable.” He was part of the more than hour-long discussion at Battlefield Farms, founded in 1990 by Dutch immigrant Jerry van Hoven as part of a greenhouse operation that’s now the largest in the state. His sons and daughter run various divisions of the business and several of them weighed in on solutions for their workforce shortage during the candid conversation.
