Crop Production

Crop production includes the production and management of row crops such as soybean, corn, cotton, wheat, and tobacco for profit. Extension programs in this area focus on challenges facing crop producers and supporting industries in marketing, integrated pest management, sustainable cultural practices, environmental and human health risks, invasive species, regulations, and profitability.
