The Agriculture program provides support to local agricultural producers and businesses through a four-county arrangement among Washington, Ozaukee, Fond du Lac, and Sheboygan counties.

On this website, you find articles on Farm Ready Research, Agricultural Programs (Crops and Soils, Dairy, Farm Management) and so much more! If it happens on a farm or in a field, the Extension Institute of Agriculture works with you to achieve better results. Our innovative dairy management programs range from genetics to farm and business management. Extension researchers work hand-in-hand with row crop, forage, and fresh produce growers to provide best practices for every aspect of the growing phase. We also advise communities on using sustainable practices to create inviting spaces free from invasive species. Our work supports people, communities, and businesses.
