If it happens on a farm or in a field, the Extension Institute of Agriculture works with you to achieve better results. Our innovative dairy management programs range from genetics to farm and business management. Cooperative Extension researchers work hand-in-hand with row crop, forage and fresh produce growers to provide best practices for every aspect of the growing phase. We also advise communities on using sustainable practices to create inviting spaces free from invasive species.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension Agriculture Institute is moving ahead with changes that allocates their resources in a different way than in the past. These changes will allow you and our office the ability to interact with specialists throughout the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension system and with other agencies in Wisconsin. Our work supports people, communities and businesses. Agriculture -Division of Extension
