The agricultural economists of the LSU Agricultural Center work to develop extension and outreach educational programs that deliver relevant farm financial management, market and policy information and to teach the use of economic principles in making business decisions. 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
- Respond to high-priority issues relating to farming, agribusiness, natural resources and rural communities.
