UC Agriculture and Natural Resources connects the power of UC research in agriculture, natural resources, nutrition and youth development with local communities to improve the lives of all Californians.
Statewide programs focus research and extension on solving priority problems that engage ANR academics and UC faculty in integrated teams to work on complex issues that need trans-disciplinary approaches.
ANR's Research and Extension Centers, located in important California ecosystems, support research projects and educational events. Research projects conducted at the RECs enable the delivery of the highest-quality science to growers, industry and land managers.
Research and Information Centers (RIC) are commodity-specific focal points for UC researchers and private and public constituencies providing resources and information.
