Crop Science

University of Minnesota Extension, Clay County is committed to providing the most up-to-date research-based information possible to agricultural professionals, growers, homeowners, and any other interested people. We accomplish this by utilizing information sources not limited to the University of Minnesota; North Dakota State University and other extension services are often called upon. We work closely with other county extension educators in northwestern Minnesota to bring a greater amount of diversity and knowledge to our local program.


Several agricultural professionals and producers volunteer to serve on a county extension advisory committee. This committee ensures that our programs offered for the agricultural sector are pertinent and timely in delivery.
