CALS Launches International Extension Program

Four men are working in an plowed field to do soil testing.

The first venture in the newly established International Extension Program proved successful. The primary purpose of the initial project was to cultivate a relationship between UVM and Namık Kemal Üniversitesi (NKU) in Turkey, through agricultural outreach collaboration.

These efforts provide solid foundations to collaborate with NKÜ and Plovdiv Universities for future research and outreach. The International Extension program application process is being formalized. Stay tuned for more information!
