Sustaining Soil, Water and People

Since 1989, the Agroecology/Sustainable Agriculture Program (ASAP) at the University of Illinois has been working to “facilitate and promote research and education that protects Illinois’ natural and human resources, and sustain agricultural production forever.” We use a variety of methods to train Extension and other ag personnel in sustainable agriculture. Through newsletters, our Website, and our field days, we disseminate information on sustainable cropping systems and the broad range of issues related to sustainability. The principles of sustainable agriculture can help producers of any size not only survive but also thrive.

Many resources are available, including copies of our newsletter, Agro-Ecology News and Perspectives, on-farm research reports, and guidebooks. In addition, we can provide you with SARE publications covering a wide variety of production and marketing topics. We invite you to also visit our Website.
