Agriculture extensions offer more than ag data and research. Starting a business? Looking for economic info? Need a second pair of eyes on a crop disease? Your extension can help.

The USA agriculture extension services are an outreach program of land grant universities. The goal of the extension service is to bring research based information to the ag community.

Ideally, the research information can be applied on production and community operations to help them become more productive, increase their yields, and improve their lives. Extension personnel and services are not only agriculture focused but also focus on family, consumer sciences, youth education, and economic & community development.
