A new report highlights the value that the University of California’s Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR) provides to the state. The new publication, Working for the Benefit of All Californians: 2018 UC ANR Annual Report, details some of the ways in which UC ANR’s impact is felt across the state. Some of the examples cited in the report include helping to promote economic prosperity through working with growers to adopt superior varieties of crops, as well as implement new practices to ensure the health of livestock.
Through more than 100,000 meetings, workshops, field days, and other classes that were held, UC ANR provided assistance in protecting the state’s natural resources and developing climate resilience in communities. UC ANR Vice President, Glenda Humiston noted in the report that “our advisors and specialists are in every county and work with the entire UC system, as well as a wide array of external partners, to solve local and statewide problems with science-based solutions.”
