New Webliography: Sustainable Agriculture Resources

The following resource was compiled by Michele DeSilva, the emerging technologies librarian at Central Oregon Community College’s Barber Library. It appears in the July/August 2012 issue of C&RL News.

From the Introduction:

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines sustainable agriculture as a “way of practicing agriculture which seeks to optimize skills and technology to achieve long-term stability of the agricultural enterprise, environmental protection, and consumer safety.” This focus on long-term stability for both agriculture and the environment embeds agricultural practices and practitioners in the larger context of ecosystems and entire communities.


The resources presented here highlight some of the best resources available to consumers, producers (of any scale), students, and researchers.

The webliography includes directories, government agencies, organizations/associations, publications, and more.
