Welcome to UD Cooperative Extension

 

In 1869, the University of Delaware (UD) College of Agriculture and Natural Resources was established as the state’s land-grant university with a mission consisting of three elements: teaching, research and “extension”.

Cooperative Extension fulfills the third part of this mission: bringing knowledge to the people of Delaware. Today, we offer university knowledge, research and resources — just for you! You have questions. We have expert answers.

From nutrition classes and Master Naturalist courses to 4-H youth clubs and programs that support local agriculture — UD Cooperative Extension has something for everyone!

Make an impact

 

Getting involved with UD Cooperative Extension is an excellent way to support and improve your Delaware community. Whether you're volunteering as a 4-H Adult Leader or donating to support your local Master Gardener program, UD Cooperative Extension is grateful to have your involvement!



Managing Spotted Lanternflies
 

This destructive, invasive insect poses a threat to Delaware's agricultural economy. This winter and spring, it is important to watch for and destroy their eggs by crushing them or scraping them into a plastic bag with rubbing alcohol.
