Farm Advisor/UC Cooperative Extension
The Farm Advisor serves the people of Inyo and Mono counties in matters related to agricultural production by providing research-based production advisement. We also administer the local 4-H Youth Development Program, UC Master Gardeners, and the UC Master Food Preservers.
The Farm Advisor conducts research and offers advisement in the following areas:
- Season extension
- Environmental Horticulture
- Pest control
- Best management practices for small-scale horticultural crops
- Food safety practices for small operations
Our goal is to help producers of all sizes fill in the gaps in knowledge that may hinder the viability of their enterprise. We can do this by cooperating on research projects, providing unbiased advice, and connecting you with other resources. If you are a producer of livestock, alfalfa, forages, or another crop and you need assistance, please contact us, as we can provide assistance through our statewide connections. We're your connection to the University of California's division of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
In addition to advising food production, we can provide advisement in Environmental Horticulture issues. Nurseries, arborists, landscapers, and agencies should contact the Farm Advisor for support.
Home gardeners who require assistance should contact our Master Gardener volunteers for answers to their gardening questions.
