Welcome to Sustainable Agriculture at Illinois

Harnessing sunlight and atmospheric CO2 into the food, feed, fuel, and products needed for a circular economy requires a fundamental understanding of agricultural systems and their complex and dynamic interactions with society and the environment. Work at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign spans disciplines and sectors to focus on critical topics related to the physical, biological, and social science of sustainable agriculture.

Based on global interactions, the Illinois Sustainable Agriculture Scholars’ research, education, and engagement programs are integrated across four main categories of expertise.
