Delaware Agriculture Week and Month

Delaware Ag Week expands to Delaware Ag Month from January 10 to January 27, 2022! 

Join us for a mixture of live, hybrid, and virtual gatherings with local and national industry experts to explore the latest innovations in agriculture. Earn credits for pest management, nutrient management, and Certified Crop Advising. Delaware Ag Month features all the valuable sessions you’ve come to expect from this 20-year tradition, including agronomy, fruits and vegetables, woodland management, animal science, risk management, and more.

After 20 years, the Delaware Department of Agriculture, University of Delaware Cooperative Extension and Delaware State University Cooperative Extension are still committed to their partnership to bring relevant, research-based information to help improve the viability of Delaware’s agriculture industry. 

This event is brought to you by an equal opportunity provider. If you have special needs requiring accommodations, please contact us two weeks before the event at 302-856-2585 x 540.
