The Extension Education Community focuses upon advancing high standards of agronomic education to help agronomists better serve the public


The Extension Education Community will provide an opportunity for Extension Agronomists to meet, exchange and share information, plan, and coordinate programs and services.

The community anticipates continuing these and other activities.
