Field to Fork: Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems

Agriculture isn’t just about sowing the land; it’s about finding solutions to modern problems facing our food supply.  With farmland shrinking and a hungry population growing, what’s being done to ensure an abundant food supply that will be healthier, last longer, taste better?

In the second installment of the UCTV Prime series “9 Billion Mouths to Feed: The Future of Farming,” we’ll learn about UC Davis’ unprecedented “100-year experiment” and meet the first graduates of a brand new major: sustainable agriculture and food systems.

When Oysters and Cows Collide

California’s scenic Marin County is home to two thriving industries that were once in conflict – oyster farming and dairy farming.

In order to grow healthy and marketable oysters, the farmers depended on clean water in Tomales Bay. But regulations meant to protect the bay from cattle runoff were so strict that dairy farmers feared they could no longer stay in business.

Now, with help from scientists at UC Cooperative Extension, these two communities have found creative solutions that allow both kinds of farmers to share this beautiful and fertile region. Find out how in the latest edition of UCTV Prime Cuts, “Cooperation Trumps Conflict in Tomales Bay.”
