Located 15 miles southeast of Fresno in the central San Joaquin Valley, in one of the most productive agricultural areas in the world, the Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center is the University of California's largest off-campus agricultural research facility. Kearney routinely houses more than 125 employees, including a multi-disciplinary team of faculty from UC Davis, UC Riverside and UC Berkeley.
Since opening in 1962, Kearney has achieved international acclaim for leadership in the development of new fruit, nut, and grape varieties, innovative cultural and irrigation practices, pest and disease management techniques, and postharvest biology. In addition, Kearney plays a leadership role in maintaining the quality of California's rural environment, with programs in air and water quality, and mosquito management.
