Yard & Garden

Our county's agriculture must remain competitive within local, national and even international markets. This requires a continuous flow of appropriate technology addressing local needs within New Mexico. Our Extension program works to maintain and strengthen programs that address these needs. Water is one of the most important limiting resources for our county's agriculture. All aspects of water use affect agricultural efficiency and profitability. Water management will become more critical as water demands for urbanization and industrialization increase. Alternative marketing information is needed on specialty crops adapted to smaller farms, especially in northern New Mexico and around urban centers of growth. The generation of this production and marketing information should be integrated with concerns of the environment, water conservation/quality, and cultural diversity of clientele including the interaction between rural and urban communities.
