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.
You can see a listing of our publications by looking at our catalog. If hard copies of the publication are available, they can be ordered by clicking on the link provided on that page. This site also includes a link to the LSU AgCenter’s quarterly magazine, Louisiana Agriculture and select newsletters.

The summer 2018 issue of Louisiana Agriculture focuses on the LSU AgCenter through its research and extension programs aids in expanding and sustaining agriculture in the state, including the sweet potato industry, which continually introduces better varieties; the agritourism industry, which is well-positioned for growth; and the dairy industry, which has potential for value-added products.
Pecans have not been associated with any foodborne disease outbreaks, but orchard conditions before and after the harvest indicate there are potential food safety risks. Contamination on in-shell pecans and nutmeats can occur preharvest, at harvest and during postharvest handling and processing. During rainfall, the shucks surrounding pecans get wet along with the nut. The nutrient-rich shucks provide a suitable environment for microbial growth. Salmonella can survive for several weeks, making it one of the favored routes for contamination.
2018 Master Gardener Choice Awards
This year, commercial corn seed companies provided 51 hybrids that were entered in the official variety trials. Five hybrid trials were conducted at four AgCenter research stations located throughout the state. Commercial seed companies voluntarily entered and selected the hybrids they wanted to have evaluated by the AgCenter.
