Agricultural Issues Center

The University of California Agricultural Issues Center (AIC) is a statewide program within UC Agriculture and Natural Resources.

We study topics such as international markets, invasive pests and diseases, the value of agricultural research and development, agricultural policy and the rural environment among others.

The issues are often global, but we emphasize implications for agriculture and natural resources in California.

The audience for AIC research and outreach includes decision makers in agriculture and government, scholars and students, journalists and the general public.
