Welcome to the
Guam Sustainable Agriculture Resource Web!
web site has been created by the UOG Cooperative
Extension Service to provide information
and resources dealing with various sustainable
agricultural practices, particularly as
they relate to the Pacific island regions.
agriculture refers to the ability of a
farm to produce food perpetually. Two
key issues are 1) long-term effects of
various practices on soil properties and
processes essential for crop productivity,
and 2) the long-term availability of inputs.
Practices that can cause long-term damage
to soil include excessive tillage (leading
to erosion) and irrigation without adequate
drainage (leading to accumulation of salt
in the soil).
