Welcome to the Agriculture and Natural Resources program in Travis County.
Our Agriculture program emphasizes systems approaches that maintain and enhance agricultural profitability through the application of sound crop and animal production practices. We address issues associated with the social and environmental impacts of food safety and quality, surface and ground water contamination, biotechnology and natural resource management.
The Natural Resources program addresses educational needs related to the management, use and sustainability of renewable and nonrenewable natural resources. Drawing on a variety of disciplines, these programs typically focus on such topics as soil, water, air, plant and animal life, forests, rangeland, aquatic and other ecosystems.
