EXTENSION

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 extension agents. Formats include publications, presentations, in-service trainings, videos and computer software. These emphasize the SWSD's five thrust areas and several of the high-priority initiatives of the UF/IFAS Extension Roadmap, including enhancing and protecting water quality, quantity, and supply; enhancing and conserving Florida's natural resources and environmental quality; and increasing the sustainability, profitability, and competitiveness of agricultural and horticultural enterprises.
