Agriculture and Natural Resource Programs

Tommy Phillips, Van Zandt County Extension Agent – Ag and Natural Resources

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Van Zandt County provides education on agriculture and natural resources. The Agriculture & Natural Resources program emphasizes systems approaches that maintain and enhance agricultural profitability through the application of sound crop and animal production practices.

We address issues associated with the social and environmental impacts of food safety and quality, surface and ground water contamination, biotechnology and natural resource management.

The program addresses educational needs related to the management, use and sustains ability of renewable and nonrenewable natural resources. Drawing on a variety of disciplines, these programs typically focus on such topics as soil, water, air, plant and animal life, forests, rangelands and aquatic and other ecosystems.
