California Farm Advisors – County Cooperative Extension Offices

July 12, 2019

What is Cooperative Extension?

Cooperative Extension is a part of a nationwide educational system which involves the USDA, the state land-grant University system and County government. Cooperative Extension offices are commonly known as local problem-solving centers that house campus-based specialists and county-based farm, home, and youth advisors. Advisors work as teams tailoring their programs to meet local needs and bringing the University’s based research information to the local community.

County Farm Advisors’ work is aimed at sustaining and enhancing California agricultural productivity and competitiveness. Together with farmers, pest control advisors, institutions and industry representatives, they identify current and emerging agricultural opportunities and problems. The advisors collaborate with campus-based Cooperative Extension specialists and faculty to research, adapt, and field-test agricultural improvements or solutions and promote the use of research findings.
