Steve Fennimore is an Extension Specialist with UC Davis located at Salinas, California. Since 1997, Steve has conducted a research and extension program focused on weed management in vegetables, flowers and strawberries, and he spends most of his time working in coastal production areas between Watsonville and Oxnard, California. His program combines chemical and nonchemical methods, for both organic and conventional systems with the objective of containing or reducing weed management costs. More recently, his program focuses on development of automated weeding systems to mitigate the severe labor shortages in California, and development of field scale steam applicators to reduce the need for chemical fumigation in sensitive sites and near urban areas.
