Mission

The ANR unit is the center of agricultural information and technical expertise in the western Pacific Region. The primary mission of the ANR unit is to advance research based knowledge through extension and higher education in the food and agricultural sciences. This includes the environmental and human sciences to benefit people and communities in Guam and the Pacific Islands. ANR serves as a key programming point for related issues on livestock, crop and aquaculture production.
