The Alabama Cooperative Extension System farm and agribusiness management team helps agricultural producers address issues focused on profitability and sustainability. This is accomplished through teaching research-based economic principles and farm management techniques.

  • agricultural appreciation
  • awareness of agricultural stress and well-being
  • empowering women in agriculture
  • enterprise budgets
  • insurance tools
  • marketing strategies and outlooks
  • policy education
  • solar energy
  • succession and estate planning
  • and more
