Cooperative Extension Service
Agriculture and Natural Resources
The ANR unit is the center for agricultural information and technical expertise in the Western Pacific region. The unit employs state of the art technology, interdisciplinary teamwork, collaboration with public and private sectors and interactive education to achieve significant improvements in the agricultural industry, the economy and social environments of Guam and the Pacific islands.
The primary mission of the ANR Unit is to work with its clientele and partners to advance research based knowledge through extension and higher education in the food and agricultural sciences and related environmental and human sciences to benefit people and communities in Guam and the Pacific islands. The program thrusts of ANR are carried out through Plans of Work designed by ANR faculty to address issues faced by the community as well as other individual/community educational and informational needs.
The Agricultural Development in the American Pacific project started in 1989 with support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. We help bring to bear the knowledge and experience of the faculty and staff of the five Pacific Land Grants on problems and opportunities of mutual interest. We partner with other institutions in the Pacific and elsewhere to help bring the best resources available to our efforts. Get to know more about us by browsing our site. Click here to visit our site.
