Extension Horticulture & Natural Resources
Horticulture and Natural Resources Extension seeks to bring research-based information to the people of Kansas and support the Kansas Horticulture industries. Four core areas represent the breadth of our department's outreach efforts.
Kansas' natural resources preserve and improve soil and water quality, including the use of trees, to maintain stream bank stability.
Healthful food, exercise and taking advantage of our natural resources can help promote the health of Kansas citizens.
Local production of vegetables and fruit, while maintaining productivity indefinitely, are an integral part of a sustainable food production system.
Choosing adapted varieties and developing efficient and effective ways of maintaining plants can help the people of Kansas save time, money and effort. Sustainable ornamental crop production protects Kansas' environment.
Quality outdoor recreation opportunities are hosted by public agencies at the municipal, county, state and federal levels of government and by numerous private and commercial enterprises.
