Definition of extension service

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

In the United States, each state has an extension service that provides the general public with state and county information regarding local agricultural regulations and resources, land and pasture management information, etc.

These resources may be referred to as a co-operative extension or county extension agency

Depending on your area, you can usually find resources such as free factsheets for growing all sorts of plants and animals, hotlines for pest, disease and general gardening questions, locally-produced television programs, and Master Gardener programs (typically organized by the extension service.)
