UC Cooperative Extension

A Partnership


The UC Cooperative Extension is a partnership between the USDA, University of California, and Merced County.

The Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) plays a vital role in fulfilling the University of California’s fundamental land-grant mission of teaching, research, and public service to benefit all Californians.

As one part of this UC Division, Cooperative Extension partners with local county governments in the delivery of research and extension programs.

These programs serve the public good through the creation, development and application of knowledge addressing critical issues in agricultural, natural and related human resources.
