Agritourism and Nature Tourism in California (2nd Edition)
Agritourism has emerged as a viable financial option for many farms and ranches. Since the publication of the first edition of Agritourism and Nature Tourism, the landscape has changed as counties and local governments incorporate agritourism into their local plans. This new edition builds on the concepts of the first, and adds updated information on regulations, risk management, and new marketing trends.

What’s new in the 2nd edition?

• Coverage of recent changes to the county, state and federal policies that impact agritourism
• An expanded marketing chapter including information on social media marketing
• An extensive listing of California agricultural marketing organizations
• An expanded chapter on risk management
• New agritourism contacts and links

As with the first edition you’ll find easy-to-use worksheets and activities that will walk you through the steps needed to determine if agritourism is for you. You’ll create business and marketing plans that can make your operation a success.

Chapters include:

Consider the Possibilities
Evaluating Your Resources: Is Tourism for You?
Creating Your Business Plan
Understanding and Navigating Regulations
Developing Your Risk Management Plan
Designing Your Marketing Strategy
Resources for Success


From farm stays and bed and breakfasts to U-pick orchards and farm stands, cooking classes to wine and olive oil tastings, the ever popular corn maze to school trips—agritourism is maturing and growing. The possibilities are still as endless as your imagination.

Workshop attendees raved about the first edition as a resource for tourist business planning. One participant from a workshop in Paso Robles said, "Chapter Two on 'Assessing Your Potential' really helped my husband and me refine our vision and get started. It made us aware of ALL the components that must be addressed." Another participant from a workshop in Reedley says, "I used the information in the manual to prepare my expansion and my plan to meet with county staff, before I submit an application."

California Insects
by Jerry A. Powell, Charles L. Hogue

California has a vast number of insect species: estimates run 30,000-35,000 or more, and even in the better known groups, new species occasionally are discovered. This volume is the first attempt in more than half a century to summarize knowledge of this rich insect fauna, and the first work ever to provide a field guide for beginning students, and the nonspecialist reader. It selects about 600 of the more characteristic kinds of insects to represent the huge variety known. Most of these are conspicuous kinds often noticed in cities or in natural areas by gardeners, hikers, fishermen, etc. For each insect, distinguishing features of its appearance, features of its biology, and its geographical distribution in California are summarized: and an illustration (photograph or drawing) is given of the adult or some other stage.

California Insects will serve as a convenient, compact introduction to the identification and understanding of these often strange and fascinating creatures. Used with other information sources cited in the text, it provides the student, collector, or naturalist a means of efficiently developing knowledge of specialized groups of insects.

The previous edition of this book was a top-10 best-seller in the Compendium Series and the new edition is even more useful with important coverage of arthropod pests: namely, mites, insects, and “worm” pests. The coverage of pests has been expanded significantly in this edition and includes the addition of 23 color photos from expert entomologists that illustrate these pests and the damage they cause.

This scientifically peer-reviewed information on numerous diseases and pests provides just the right amount of supporting information for users to make accurate decisions for disease and pest control. Throughout the Compendium of Tomato Diseases and Pests, Second Edition, disorders are both illustrated and discussed in sections that follow an easy-to-use and consistent structure: a statement of its importance and distribution, identification of its common signs and symptoms, a description of its causal organism or agent, an explanation of its cycle and epidemiology, and recommendations for management.

This easy format allows the user to quickly identify signs and symptoms of important tomato diseases and pests occurring throughout the world—in the greenhouse, in the field or garden, and in transit to the market.

Individuals with a range of skill and expertise can use this book effectively, including field and greenhouse growers, home and master gardeners, consultants, horticulturalists, extension agents, entomologists, diagnosticians, plant pathologists, educators, and students. Those who work in postharvest channels, including tomato and canning storage facilities will also benefit from Compendium of Tomato Diseases, Second Edition.

Crop Physiology

From climate change to farming systems to genetic modification of organisms, Crop Physiology, Second Edition provides a practical tool for understanding the relationships and challenges of successful cropping. With a focus on genetic improvement and agronomy, this book addresses the challenges of environmentally sound production of bulk and quality food, fodder, fiber, and energy which are of ongoing international concern. The second edition of Crop Physiology continues to provide a unique analysis of these topics while reflecting important changes and advances in the relevant science and implementation systems.

Contemporary agriculture confronts the challenge of increasing demand in terms of quantitative and qualitative production targets. These targets have to be achieved against the background of soil and water scarcity, worldwide and regional shifts in the patterns of land use driven by both climate change and the need to develop crop-based sources of energy, and the environmental and social aspects of agricultural sustainability.

Crops and Man
by Jack R. Harlan

Jack R. Harlan conceived the prevailing concepts of how the activities of human societies have shaped the evolution of crops used for food, feed, and fiber. Harlan collected and introduced over 12,000 accessions of plants into the United States. The world food supply now depends largely on only 12 to 15 plant species. Erosion of diverse gene sources from ancient landraces continues and more effective use needs to be made of germplasm collections in our gene banks.

Oak Woodland Invertebrates: The Little Things Count
Author: R Little, T Swieckl, W Tietje

This beautiful full color publication is an excellent introductory guide to a widely unnoticed universe – the minute animals called invertebrates that live in the oak woodland ecosystem in California. This fascinating world is home to a vast number of tiny creatures that provide an essential link in the health of our native California Oaks – a single acre of oak woodland may be home to 10 to 100 million individual invertebrates.

Among the invertebrate animals explored in this publication are the California Oak Worm, the Filbert Weevil and the Filbert Worm, and the Tarantula Hawk. Also explored is the human impact on this delicate ecosystem.

This is an excellent learning tool for anyone who cares about our California Oaks and wants to know more about this important ecosystem.

Olive Growing
D. Barranco, R. Fernandez-Escobar, L. Rallo

This new English edition of Olive Growing was developed by RIRDC and the AOA as a translation and update of the fifth edition of the Spanish manual. It is intended as a definitive reference source for the Australian olive industry and will also be an asset for olive producers and processors in other English speaking countries. Olive Growing is a technical manual for all those involved in the olive growing sector, i.e. growers, processors, technical experts, students and, in general, all those with an interest in growing this ancient plant. The scientific editors have designed this book as a collection of works, involving scientists and technical experts intricately linked to the crop, as well as experts in the subject matter of their assigned chapter. The aim was for them to present in a simple and clear manner, all aspects pertaining to their subject, combining the breakthroughs of the last 25 years with practical suggestions and recommendations that would help readers plant and grow an olive grove successfully, enabling them to obtain quality products in the light of current knowhow and future estimates. The scientific editors’ goal has been fully achieved, if we are to judge from the swift sale of the first four Spanish editions, now out of print, an exceptional feat for an agricultural book. To date, no other text on Spanish agriculture has been distributed so widely in such a short time.
