“Extension provides non-formal education and learning activities to people throughout the country – to farmers and other residents of rural communities as well as to people living in urban areas. It emphasizes taking knowledge gained through research and education and bringing it directly to the people to create positive changes.” USDA-NIFA
In the Irrigated Soils Lab at WSU-Prosser sharing the knowledge we gain through research is just as important as the research we do. Here are some of the posters, presentations and extension publications developed from our lab for extension and outreach in soil fertility and management.
