Coming up in California Agriculture: UC Cooperative Extension: A century of providing solutions for California
Next year marks the 100th anniversary of Cooperative Extension (CE), a nationwide system created in 1914 to link the land grant universities that teach agriculture and engineering with the farmers who put these subjects into practice. In California, UCCE advisors are a bridge between UC and the rest of the state, providing practical, research-based information and advice to help boost farm yields and solve community problems.
In our next issue, a special section will trace the history of UCCE, highlighting milestones over the last century. The section will also feature current UCCE contributions and their impact, as well as future directions for this trusted resource that connects UC research with Californians. And watch this page throughout the year for more stories about the many ways UCCE has benefitted our society.
