Welcome to South Coast Research & Extension Center
Agriculture and Natural Resource Research and Extension Since 1956
ANR South Coast REC Programs
South Coast Research and Extension Center (South Coast REC) was established by the University of California in 1956 as a representative site for agricultural and horticultural research in California's south coastal plain-temperate climatic zone. Located on 200 acres of deep, moderately sloped, alluvial fan soil, the Center and its mild winter climate are conducive to farming a wide range of crops including subtropicals as well as ornamentals for the urban landscape.
The Center provides labor, equipment, facilities and technical and management support to UC academics and to personnel from co-operating non-UC organizations, such as USDA.
