Climate Smart Agriculture
Climate Smart Agriculture supports management practices that build soil carbon, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve water use efficiencies, and promote sustainable land practices. The goal is to build agricultural resiliency to the impacts of climate change while using land management as a solution to the climate crisis. By increasing soil health, improving water use efficiency, and decreasing energy use, climate smart agriculture practices are a way to support farmers and ranchers to steward their land for future generations.
Alli Rowe is the Climate Smart Agriculture Specialist for UC Cooperative Extension in Ventura County. She provides technical assistance for farmers & ranchers with grants and can help in the application process.
Currently, there are three grant funding opportunities available for Climate Smart Agriculture practices, including:
- The Healthy Soils Program
- State Water Efficiency & Enhancement Program
- Alternative Manure Management Program
