Extension Center for Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (AFNR) brings together University experts from many disciplines to address the complex demands put on our land and water and develop balanced, comprehensive solutions. We provide effective, research-based education and integrate diverse perspectives to address critical issues impacting Minnesota's food, agriculture, and natural resources. Because we are part of the communities we serve, we can identify needs early, set up related research as needed, and develop educational programs to bring information and training to the community.
