The LSU AgCenter’s Louisiana Young Ag Producer Program (LaYAPP) is a one-year intensive classroom/hands-on, mentor-based experience that introduces high school juniors and seniors to the options available in the areas of food and fiber production and encourages them to consider a career in agricultural production. Whether their journeys will take them to the open fields and pastures of our state’s rural landscape or within smaller yet still productive expanses within urban and suburban areas, the program will provide knowledge and resources that will ultimately lead young people to their fields of choice.
