Welcome to Agronomy Extension!
The Agronomy Extension group is diverse in its educational efforts. We represent interest areas of crop (corn, soybean, small grains, forages, canola) management, crop variety testing, crop diagnostics, soil fe​rrtility, soil management, environmental soil science, soil conservation, water quality, waste management, waste disposal, large area remote sensing, soil interpretation, and land use planning.


Links to information about a wide range of agronomic topics and publications are listed along the sidebar column of the left side of this page. 


We are working on developing some great program additions for 2018! Check back here for updates.
