These programs are designed to:
  • Enhance the use of economic principles and market information in solving the economic problems faced by people in farming, agribusinesses, natural resources and rural communities
  • Support educational development that uses research-based knowledge and interdisciplinary efforts to address the needs of Louisiana's agriculture and natural resources
