The Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) is a cooperative
effort of university, government, business and non-profit
organizations dedicated to the exchange of scientific and
practical information on sustainable agricultural systems.
Publishing is a vital tool for networking.
SAN has organized its publications around the WHO, WHAT, WHERE
and HOW of sustainable agriculture.
The "Sustainable Agriculture Directory of Expertise -- 1993"
lists hundreds of people and groups you can contact for advice
on building soil health, broadening your arsenal of pest-control
tools, diversifying cash flow and much more. It is produced by
ATTRA in cooperation with SAN.
SAN sponsors the "Showcase of Educational Materials", a
compilation of publications, videos, and other materials, as a
way to identify both exemplary educational materials and
knowledge "gaps" to fill.
Those interested in contributing materials to the Showcase
should contact SAN Coordinator, c/o Alternative Farming Systems
Information Center, Rm. 304 National Agricultural Library,

accomplishments of the Sustainable Agriculture Research and
Education (SARE) program.

"Managing Cover Crops Profitably" is the first in a series of
SAN Handbooks. It was prepared because more and more farmers
want reliable, easy-to-scan information on cover crops.
"Managing Cover Crops Profitably" is a practical, introductory
guide to help remove some of the guesswork.
A SAN factsheet, "Sustainable Agriculture vs. Weeds," highlights
some of the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education
(SARE) and Agriculture in Concert with the Environment (ACE)
projects aimed at controlling weeds with fewer herbicides.
A new handbook on sustainable agriculture tillage tools and
techniques is currently in production.
