UCCE IN SANTA CRUZ

Since 1917, UCCE has worked to protect the quality of life and improve the resources of Santa Cruz County by providing knowledge based on sound science in agriculture, environmental horticulture, marine science, human nutrition and youth development. Programs are focused on finding usable alternatives to the now prohibited methyl bromide fumigant, managing invasive pests such as the light brown apple moth, plant nutrition and advances in irrigation, bettering the lives of youth and adults through education, the 4H and Master Gardener programs, investigating the cost of production of local crops, and research in the economics of new agricultural technologies. The Agricultural Cooperative Extension assists local farms, ranches and growers in reducing fruit harvest losses, adapting to climate change, and implementing improved irrigation practices.
