The University of Maine offers academic, research, and extension programs in Sustainable Agriculture (SAG) in order to address the principles and practices of environmentally sound, profitable farming.

This academic program emphasizes the building of healthy soil through crop rotations, organic soil amendments and erosion management; protecting water quality by reducing synthetic chemical use; managing pest and weed problems with integrated, ecologically sound approaches; increasing farm profits and income stability through diverse, community-based enterprises; and using knowledge of scientific principles to propose and test farming practices that better mimic natural ecosystems.
