About Us

The National Strawberry Sustainability Initiative is a grants program administered by the Center for Agricultural and Rural Sustainability at University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. The intent of this program is to improve the sustainability of the national strawberry industry through a multidisciplinary approach that features outreach, education, demonstration, and development projects. We will be working with land-grant and state-supported colleges and universities to encourage sustainability at all levels of the national strawberry industry, from production through the supply chain to the consumer level.

This blog will feature regular updates regarding developments of the Strawberry Sustainability Initiative and provide a collection of resources for producers, researchers, distributors, marketers, and consumers involved in the US strawberry industry.

More information can be found at the Strawberry Sustainability Initiative homepage.
