We are part of the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service’s statewide network and the University of Arkansas System’s Division of Agriculture.  Our mission is to provide research-based information through non-formal education to help all Arkansans improve their economic well-being and the quality of their lives.  Whether it is agriculture, 4-H, health and living, or community development, the Lincoln County Extension Office is at your service!

Lincoln County, Arkansas Agronomy

Within Lincoln County, there are 132,000 acres of cropland including cotton, rice, corn, soybeans, grain sorghum, and wheat. Increasing production efficiency is a major goal of row crop producers. The Extension staff is here to help you increase your efficiency of production through educational programs and services. Some of our programs include Research Verification Fields, variety trials, insecticide efficacy trials, weed control trials, irrigation efficiency and timing, and soil testing for both fertility and nematodes.  

Arkansas Beef Improvement Program (ABIP)

Lincoln County has approximately 137 cattle farms with a total number of cows and calves at just over 10,000. Producers are always looking for ways to decrease input costs while maintaining productivity. Let the Lincoln County Extension staff increase cow/calf productivity and profits by sharing research based management practices that can be implemented on your farm. These practices include soil and forage testing, pasture inventories, herd health programs and increasing grazing days.

Lincoln County 4-H Youth Development

The Cane Creek Critters 4-H Club in Lincoln County had a special treat at a recent club meeting.  A representative from the Delta Rivers Nature Center in Pine Bluff presented a program on "Birds of Prey" for the 4-H'ers.  He explained the anatomy, survival instincts, and behaviors of the birds.  The 4-H'ers were especially interested in the two guests which came with the speaker--an owl and a hawk.  One particular item of interest the 4-H'ers learned was the fact that an owl has three stomachs. The food travels to all three stomachs and the end result is an owl pellet which may be dissected to uncover the last thing the owl ate. The Cane Creek Critters plan to dissect owl pellets at their next club meeting!

This is just one example of the many programs offered to 4-H members. Project-based learning has laid the ground work that will carry youth on to bigger and better things whether they choose a science-based career path or not.

Lincoln County Extension Homemakers Help Others

Recently the Lincoln County Extension Homemakers held workshops to create beautiful soft jersey caps for patients going through cancer treatment. These caps will be donated to the American Cancer Society, area treatment centers, and individuals in need. Since 1912, members of the Arkansas Extension Homemakers Council (AEHC) have made it their mission to empower individuals and families to improve their lives through continuing education, leadership development, and community service. The organization is one of the largest nonprofit volunteer groups in the state with a membership of 4,400 and over 350 clubs.
