Center to Lead Extension’s Statewide Priority Program on Value-Added Agriculture:
Associate Dean of UT Extension, Dr. Tim Cross, recently established a statewide priority program for Value-Added Agriculture. The Center’s Megan Bruch and Rob Holland are among the 20 member team with Holland serving as Chair of the group. The team will work together to provide proactive leadership, planning and implementation for Extension educational programs in value-added agriculture. They will cooperate on grant-funded projects, create web-based resources, collaborate on value-added projects, provide in-service training for Extension agents and develop a five-year plan for value-added outreach across the state.
