Extension & Outreach

Informing best practices in agricultural systems and horticulture through Wisconsin and the world

Research and discoveries made in the department inform best practices for farmers, agronomists, horticulturalists and others who produce plants for food, fuel or fiber.

Eleven of our faculty are funded by the Division of Extension and work closely with the network of Extension specialists throughout the state of Wisconsin. Many of our faculty and staff offer public education programs through our on-campus Allen Centennial Garden and through numerous other outreach programs for K-12 students and the general public.
