Agriculture & Natural Resources

A variety of teaching methods are used to teach West Carroll audiences the latest research-based information. Information on how to use pesticides according to LSU AgCenter recommendations is provided to 600 producers and home gardeners through home visits, newsletters, phone calls and production meetings. Agricultural producers are provided information on methods to produce crops effectively. Eight demonstration plots and two crop verification fields set up at cooperating farms illustrate how the AgCenter variety recommendations can be adapted by producers. Adoption of these practices by producers are observed by on-farm visits.
