The Louisiana Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) is a professional development program sponsored by Louisiana State University AgCenter (LSUAC) and the Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center (SUAREC). We work together to implement programs that enhance the capabilities of Louisiana's ag professionals in the area of sustainable agriculture. Louisiana SARE partners with researchers, extension faculty, producers, and community organizations to research and implement the best science-based practices available in all aspects of Louisiana's agricultural system. In addition to research, SARE is dedicated to providing education in sustainable agriculture through various trainings offered each year. Educational initiatives include workshops and long-distance education training sessions, field trips, resource manuals and informational bulletins.
Our SARE State Coordinators are vital for expanding sustainable agriculture training for Extension, NRCS, and other ag professionals who will then help producers transition to a more sustainable agriculture.
