Learning Farm-Teaching Agents and Producers

Proposed by: Sherry Beaty-Sullivan

Presenter: Beaty-Sullivan, S., Cea-Agri, University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, Nashville, AR 71852

The Learning Farm is a unique program in that it is conducted on a private farm as a "Horticulture Verification" farm. It is being used as a model for other fruit producers in the area. We are also using the Learning Farm as an educational farm to teach area agents and producers, proper pruning, pest identification and management,and different orchard management strategies. The Learning Farm program has been in place at its original location in Howard County, AR for three years and is the model for new Learning Farms in other parts of the state.
