Serving Fresno County

Welcome Nicholas Clark to the UCCE Team!

New Agronomic Cropping Systems and Nutrient Management Advisor in Kings, Tulare, and Fresno Counties.

My name is Nicholas Clark. I’m a new UC Extension (UCCE) Advisor with a number of crops, counties, and issues to cover. I was born and raised in Fresno. I received my M. S. in Plant Science at Fresno State, a strongly agronomic and practical education. I have worked since mid-2014 with UCCE in a cotton breeding program for resistance to Fusarium Race 4 Wilt and in wheat silage variety testing in the San Joaquin Valley.

As a new advisor, my priorities are to 1) come to know the growers and consultants in my assigned region, 2) to understand and respond to their needs, and 3) to facilitate and communicate results of relevant scientific research for my growers and consultants. There are a couple of issues I intend to address immediately. Yield management under limited and poor quality water of field crops is one. Risk management of nitrate leaching to groundwater through learning with growers what improved practices will be in the years to come is the other. I see my growers and consultants and myself as leaders in these issues, and I am very excited to begin my career in helping to shape the future of agriculture in California with my peers.

Outreach and Research are the Keys to Success for Small Family Farmers

For the more than 4,700 family farms in Fresno there is help in the UC Cooperative Extension Service of Fresno.  Outreach in the form of workshops, seminars, conferences, phone consultations, newsletters, publications, websites, and one-on-one farm visits provide answers to questions and much needed help.

  The outreach even takes the form of helping to plan legislative bus tours with the farm bureau to help educate US senators/assembly, state senators/assembly, city council members, and their staff about the agriculture in this county.
