Arkansas Farm & Ranch Resources
Pests. Diseases. Weather. Markets. Each variable raises acres of questions in the minds of those who grow crops and livestock. For more than a century, the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service has provided reliable, practical answers and technology for producers. Among the most successful means for demonstrating answers are the crop verification programs. Launched more than 30 years ago, our verification trials have tested new techniques so effectively, they have been copied worldwide. Additionally, our biosecurity information is critical in informing producers about risks to their livelihood and our special programs such as beekeeping are popular among those who may be new to agriculture.
