Human activities, like agriculture, industry, and recreation, have their waste products. Protecting the soil, water, and air from pollutants is a critical part of Extension research. Encouraging wise stewardship of Georgia's resources not only protects humans and their environment from harm, it also creates a climate where responsible industry can flourish and prosper.
