The California Department of Pesticide Regulation gave the Processed Tomato
Foundation one of our first IPM Innovator awards.  The Foundation is a
joint organization of growers and processors dealing with environmental and
food safety issues. They emphasize grower education about IPM, including
seminars and field demonstration plots. Contact: Ms. Pam Jones at (415)
