We Need More UC Ag Research!
With an increasing world population, the need to produce safe and nutritious food has never been of greater concern. To add further strain to the issue is the limited funding available for vital agricultural research. The University of California, a land-grant university, is making strides to alleviate this obstacle by conducting critical food, agricultural and natural-resources research as well as public outreach initiatives. The results of such studies have spurred economic innovation, especially in agriculture that could lead to a solution towards a healthy food supply for the planet.
