Extension and Outreach
The SWSD extension faculty translate current, relevant soil and water science knowledge into user-friendly formats for Florida residents, visitors, industry, business, governmental agencies and county agents. Formats include publications, presentations, in-service training, videos and computer software. These emphasize the SWSD's five thrust areas and 10 of the Florida cooperative Extension Service's State Major programs (SMPs). SMPs cover crop production and management, sustainable development and environmental regulations, and water quality.
