The threat to agricultural security can come in many forms: natural, accidental and intentional. Agriculture and its related industries are certainly susceptible to sabotage from terrorists, disgruntled employees or others intent on doing harm through the nation's food supply. But just as deadly are losses due to natural disasters and accidents. A well educated industry, employees and emergency response teams can minimize the threat and the damage.

The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences has taken on a major role in training throughout the state on agrosecurity issues. Other related activities include an international web network to identify invasive species, education of a largely Hispanic workforce in the Green Industry, cutting the incidence of salmonella and fighting insect pests in urban settings.
