The Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources has a strong legacy providing vision and focus for the future of agriculture and the balance between human activity and the Earth’s natural resources. The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Science (UF/IFAS) aligns directly with this legacy by combining all aspects of the land-grant mission (Extension, Research, and Teaching) with disciplines serving agriculture and natural resources throughout the state. UF/IFAS is at the forefront of the intersection of agriculture and natural resources challenges, given the complexity, diversity, and climatic exposure of Florida systems. This BANR celebration event has been designed to highlight challenges that Florida is facing along with potential pathways for advancing its agriculture and natural resources for sustainably increasing benefits to the state.
