Agriculture & Natural Resources
Agriculture and Natural Resources agents are the educational links in relaying current research-based information from the University of Georgia to the local community. Agents teach agriculture and natural resources subject matter and provide educational programs through individual and group instruction.
Below are some of UGA Extension's most broadly useful resources for those involved in agriculture on the farm, in schools, and around the home.
