Pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 821, it is the intent of the Legislature that programs at the University of California designed to promote research on, and facilitate adoption of, sustainable agricultural practices, including, but not limited to, research, teaching, and outreach in the areas of sustainable farming systems, biologically integrated farming systems, organic agriculture, small farms, agroecology systems, biointensive integrated pest management, and biological pest control shall be adequately funded through the annual budget process to ensure the programs’ ongoing ability to respond to the needs of all sectors of California’s agricultural industry. It is the further intent of the Legislature that the sustainable agricultural practices, methods, and materials identified and developed by these programs be incorporated into appropriate programs of the state and the university to maximize the access of California farmers and ranchers to the information needed to adopt and implement these measures.
