Description:

The University of California has created a wonderfully informative website with the aim to "provide leadership and support for scientific research and education in agricultural and food systems that are economically viable, conserve natural resources and biodiversity." The site is for ranchers and farmers in regard to production and marketing, but is also for the rural and urban communities to better their understanding of the need for and desirability of using and supporting sustainable agricultural practices. Visitors will find that the last three links on the menu on the left side of the page contain resources for farmers that are essential when it comes to sustainable agriculture: "Cover Crops", "PestCast", and "Soil Quality". The "PestCast" is particularly interesting, as it introduces a new technology to forecast crop disease via a computer-based model. Under the "Resources" heading on the left side menu, there is a link to a seasonal "Newsletter", simply titled "Sustainable Agriculture" to which visitors can subscribe.
