UC Agricultural Issues Center

May 20, 2013 admin

The University of California Agricultural Issues Center (AIC) provides identification and analysis of important issues affecting agriculture in California. AIC provides independent and objective research-based information on a range of critical, emerging agricultural issues and their significance for the economy.

AIC studies topics such as food and agricultural commodity markets, the value of agricultural research and development, farm costs and returns, consequences of food and agricultural policy and rural resources and the 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 industry, non-governmental organizations and governments, as well as scholars, journalists, students and the general public.
