Eric Natwick
Farm Advisor, Cooperative Extension Imperial

I diagnose insects and insect related disease problems brought to my office or on field calls from filed crops, vegetable crops and from homes and business offices. I write reports on insect management research and management of insect transmitted disease research for both field crops and vegetable crops grown in the Imperial Valley, CA. I enjoy working on a research farm where I'm privileged to conduct research on insect management problems related the the needs of our local clientele. I also enjoy the personal interaction with clientele and with fellow researchers.
