Young Scholars Take Cali

Students in the CAES Office of Diversity Affairs 2016 Young Scholars Internship Program visited California for a 7-day faculty lead agricultural immersion tour to gain perspectives of large scale agriculture production, food safety and security in the United States. Thirteen students and four UGA faculty and staff toured the University of California at Davis’ – Agricultural Research Services (ARS) facility, the Syngenta-flower breeding facility, garlic production in Gilroy, viticulture in the NAPA valley area; and explored and discussed environmental issues such as water scarcity and the long term environmental impacts of production practices.
