AgScience-on-tap: Research for immediate implementation

Dr. Monique Riviera, Extension Specialist, UC Riverside talks online about "Research for immediate implementation: Working at the interface of research and agriculture in the United States".

In the United States, the term "cooperative extension" refers to a network of state university systems that requires university scientists to share their information with agricultural professionals as well as other facets of local communities. Cooperative extension is a federal program first established by the Smith-Lever Act of 1914. This program uses federal funds to establish a university operated system meant to create an information pipeline into local communities in order to inform people about cutting edge technology and research in agriculture, nutrition, and related topics. Each state handles this federal funding differently but it looks very similar between states. Scientists are based at universities and are responsible for research and extension (also: science communication) programming related to their field.

"This was my dream job and now, I am a cooperative extension specialist based at the University of California, Riverside. My research and extension program is focused on subtropical cropping systems. In this talk, I will be discussing my lab's current focus on citrus greening (also: Huanglongbing) in citrus in California. I will explain how the research we do is communicated and implemented by regulatory agencies as well as by growers to optimize citrus production under the threat of this insect-vectored lethal plant disease," says Monique Riviera.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
