Exotic Fruit Fly Resources

California is experiencing an unusually high population of exotic fruit flies this season. The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has issued local quarantine and eradication measures to prevent statewide spread of the Queensland Fruit Fly, Tau Fly, Mediterranean Fruit Fly, and Oriental Fruit Fly.

The WG Center for Innovation & Technology was created to help identify industry priorities, discover technologies to address those priorities, set up testing, facilitate industry feedback and communicate progress.


Water quality and supply has never been more important. Western Growers puts water at the forefront of planning, innovation and advocacy.



Climate change affects growers in many ways. We believe that support for our members needs to come in multiple forms, from legislative to technological advancements and beyond.
