The New Technologies for Ag Extension 2022-2023 Yearbook is available as a new title on the Extension Foundation’s website. The publication documents dozens of projects funded through the New Technologies for Ag Extension (NTAE) program, a cooperative agreement between USDA NIFA, Oklahoma State University, and the Extension Foundation. The goal of NTAE is to incubate, accelerate, and expand promising work that will increase the impact of the Cooperative Extension System (CES) in the communities it serves, and provide models that can be adopted or adapted by Extension teams across the nation.
The 83-page publication – presented in a lively magazine format – shares how these grant projects improve human, environmental, and community health. It contains an overview of the NTAE program, which has supported nearly 75 Cooperative Extension projects and program teams over four years. Using illustrated feature articles and Q&As, the publication shares innovative Cooperative Extension work across the U.S., from technology to composting to youth development to health and equity. In addition, the publication shares information about the vital work undertaken by ECOP’s Program Action Teams.
Extension Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Beverly Coberly shared, “The projects showcased in this yearbook reflect the diversity and breadth of Extension disciplinary work and programming. Through these feature stories and Q&As, readers will gain deeper insights into some of the Cooperative Extension System’s most innovative, exciting projects, including the lessons the teams learned, the projects’ significance for Extension in a broader context, and what lies ahead for the teams. We are proud and excited to share this publication with our national community.”
