California’s Agricultural Edge

California agriculture is a $37.5 billion industry, with the Golden State being home to nine of the nation’s top ten producing counties.

In the first episode of UCTV Prime’s new four-part series “9 Billion Mouths to Feed: The Future of Farming,” we take a look at innovation born at UC Davis that has changed the way farmers do their jobs, and see how agriculture experts of the future are preparing to meet the many challenges ahead.

Next week (Oct 30), we’ll show you what’s coming in high-tech agriculture that could very well help feed the world’s growing population, expected to hit 9 billion by the year 2050.
