Welcome to the UC Organic Agriculture Institute
California leads the nation in total organic farms, production acres and crop value – in fact, we more than double the next leading state in each category. Organic production practices have many known environmental benefits, and in this way can help contribute to climate-smart farming systems.
As demand for organic agriculture continues to expand, there is a pressing need for strong institutional infrastructure to support this growing sector. As such, the UC Organic Agriculture Institute was created to provide high quality research and extension support to current and transitioning organic growers across the state.
