Since the beginnings of the land-grant system, publications have been one of the most important ways to get research-based educational material to the public. These publications have included one-page fact sheets, brochures, educational materials, documents and even books. Most of our publications are available online, hardcopy or both. Viewers can download documents from our Website or simply read them online.

Highlights of Louisiana Agriculture 2017

Agriculture is big business in Louisiana — contributing billions of dollars to the economy, employing thousands of people and providing many of the products we use every day. From sugarcane and sweet potatoes to crawfish and catfish, with cattle, rice, cotton, soybeans, corn and much more in between, Louisiana agriculture provides a diverse range of commodities. It also provides jobs for thousands of farmers, fishers, foresters, ranchers and other agricultural producers, as well as thousands more involved in industries that handle food and fiber products along their way to consumers.

Summer Hauling

Opportunities for “horsing around” are endless in the summer. Horse shows, competitions, sales and trail rides are just a haul away. But hauling your horse during the hot and humid Louisiana summer can pose serious health risks, including dehydration, heatstroke and exhaustion.

Insect Bite Sensitivity in Horses

Insect bite hypersensitivity — also called sweet itch, seasonal recurrent dermititis or Queensland itch — is a common ailment in horses during warmer weather. The culicoides midge (no-see-um gnat) bites the horse, causing an allergic reaction, inflammation, extremely itchy skin and hair loss along the chest, shoulders, face, mane, tail and midline of the abdomen. While there is no effective treatment, prevention and insect control are the best methods to manage this uncomfortable condition.

How to test honeybees for Varroa mites

Varroa mites, honeybee parasites that spread the deformed wing virus, are a major source of colony death. To determine if you need to treat for mites, regular testing is recommended, especially in the late summer.
