This week we would like to feature Jared Plocher! 

A fourth generation farmer, Jared is no stranger to the ins and outs of California agriculture. Today, he lives in Woodland with his family where they run a ranch with cattle and pigs. After nearly 20 years in heavy civil construction, Jared completed his master’s degree in Occupational Safety and Health. Knowing safety is a significant factor in agriculture as well, Jared joined the Grow West team as the Corporate Safety Manager in 2018. Most of his time is spent out at various locations building relationships and coming up with solutions to enhance safety protocols. Having completed over 87 days of safety training last year, Jared said, "I am here to make sure that people, real people with families and lives outside of work, make it home at night. It's all about the personal connection and finding safety solutions together." 

Thank you, Jared, for all you do to keep us safe!

This week we are featuring Emily Garrison! 

Emily grew up in Woodland and has been around both agriculture and Grow West for the majority of her life. After graduating from college, Emily realized she has a love for numbers and the challenges that come along with them. After taking accounting courses to learn the ins and outs of accounting, she now serves as the Controller where she has most recently led the company through a software change. "I get to work with so many people and spend a lot of my time working with locations helping ensure they have all the necessary accounting tools for their operations, including budgets and financials. Although this is a challenging role, I enjoy helping Grow West work towards company goals." 

Thank you, Emily, for all you do!

This week we would like to feature Tony Perez! At the beginning of his career, Tony was in the food service industry where he managed a local McDonald’s store in Dixon, California. That is where his passion for hard work and customer service started. After many rigorous years in the food service industry, Tony was looking for a change and started driving truck for a local company where he met Joe Carrasco. Since joining the Grow West trucking team in 2009, Tony has served as a mentor and committee lead for the safety committee. "My managers embraced my passion for teaching, so I conduct the ride along, hands on training for our new hires, which helps them feel comfortable and confident before they go out on their own. It is very rewarding to be a part of something bigger and to know you had a role in producing a crop." Thank you, Tony, for all you do! #WeAreGrowWest #Spotlight
Veraison in wine grapes is the critical stage in which quality factors like color intensity, brix, and uniform berry size at harvest are all determined. Having too much nitrogen present during this stage can cause delays in maturity, resulting in more green fruit crush. Talk to your Grow West PCA to discuss your veraison nutrition plans.

This week we would like to feature Cody Johnson! 

Born and raised in Mendocino County, Cody has been surrounded by the agriculture community from a young age. Cody joined the Ukiah Grow West team two years ago as Warehouse Supervisor, where he is responsible for managing inventory flow for the location. “Working side by side with the agricultural community, both the farmers, 4-H youth, has been the most rewarding part of my position. There is so much knowledge and history in our agriculture community, and I am thankful to get to form relationships with the community and serve them,” shared Cody. 

Thank you, Cody, for all you do!

Our PCAs have recorded in their scouting reports that populations in Coddling Moth traps are up approximately 80% in walnuts over previous years. This increase is a reason to consult with your PCA to ensure that your management plan is in place to reduce the impact in walnuts.
This week we would like to feature Thom Wiseman! 

Thom grew up on the Delta and was first introduced to the agriculture chemical and fertilizer industry when his father started his own company in the industry around 1950. No stranger to driving row crop sprayers or making deliveries, and also the not-so-glamourous parts of owning this business, Thom enjoyed being in the outdoors and the opportunity to create relationships that came along with the industry. He graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Ag Economics and Business Management and started his career shortly after as a PCA. Now in his 44th season, Thom services clients out of the Walnut Grove location and shared, “the most rewarding part about being a PCA for me is the great satisfaction I get from approaching and completing each season. Each one is different and no two have ever been alike. I get excited to go out in the field and start a new challenge each season.” 

Thank you, Thom, for all you do!

Our PCAs have recorded in their scouting reports that populations in Navel Orangeworm traps are up 30-40% in almonds over previous years. This increase is a reason to consult with your PCA to ensure that your management plan is in place to reduce the impact in your almonds.
