Crop Production

UME works to advance innovative, profitable, and sustainable crop production systems through applied research, instructional publications and materials, grower meetings and webinars, farm visits, and consultations. This meets the needs of grain, forage, fruit, vegetable, ornamental horticulture and urban farms throughout the state.

Livestock and Poultry

The University of Maryland Extension serves the livestock and poultry industries through applied research and research-based educational programs. These programs help growers and managers of beef and dairy cattle, goat, horse, poultry, sheep, and other animals develop, maintain, and operate economically viable and environmentally responsible production operations.

Farm Management

Non-formal educational programming and applied research conducted by UME help Maryland producers and agribusinesses improve their business management skills, increase profitability, and fulfill long-term goals. This is accomplished through workshops, seminars, and individual on-farm consultations on business management, strategic and tactical planning, record keeping, financial analysis, and computer applications.
