The physical location of our campus connects us to the land, regional environmental and sustainability issues, and traditional and emerging agricultural practices.
Research strengths have emerged in applications related to climate change adaptation, water and wastewater management, food systems and security, agri-tech, fruit production and protection, development of sustainable new crops, viticulture, environmental risk management with big data analytics, biodiversity conservation, eco-criticism, and environmental and agricultural sustainability.
