The Sterile Insect Technique Field Day will emphasize on the benefits and adaptation of SIT’s as a biological pest control method, along with state of the art technology advancements. There will be presentations and speeches on history, challenges, commercialization, success, and opportunities of Codling Moth SIT here in California. These opportunities are stemming from 25+ years of viable application in Canada and Washington. That will lead into presentations on the Navel Orangeworm projects and opportunities breaking ground in California 2023. The event will conclude with a live field demonstration of American made drones releasing moths.
