Climate Smart Agriculture Program Impact Report

2019-2022 Impact Report for the Climate Smart Agriculture Program at UC ANR

UC ANR and the California Department of Food and Agriculture

In September 2023, we published an impact report for the UC ANR Climate Smart Agriculture technical assistance program in CIWR. The program has supported over 1,300 farmers and ranchers in California and resulted in over 400 successful applications for state grant programs totaling $36 million.

Check out UC ANR's blog post of the program.

Guidelines for Agave Selection and Production in California

A guidebook for California's emerging Agave industry.

UC Davis Water Management Lab

In August 2023, the Water Management Lab at UC Davis, supported by CIWR and others, published a guidebook for agave selection and management in California. California producers are exploring agave as a financially viable, environmental resilient, and culturally appropriate crop. The guidebook provides easy-to-use information for growers who are interested in agave production or are currently producing agave in California. In addition to the common species, the guidelines cover other non-traditional agave species.
