Horticulture, Forestry and Recreation Resources
Welcome to Extension Horticulture

Horticulture, Forestry, and Recreation Resources Extension seeks to bring research-based information to the people of Kansas and support the Kansas Horticulture industries. Four core areas represent the breadth of our department's outreach efforts.


Forestry and Natural Resources 
– Kansas' natural resources preserve and improve soil and water quality, including the use of trees, to maintain stream bank stability.


Horticulture & Human Health
– Healthful food, exercise and taking advantage of our natural resources can help promote the health of Kansas citizens.


Sustainable Food Production
– Local production of vegetables and fruit, while maintaining productivity indefinitely, are an integral part of a sustainable food production system.


Turf & Ornamentals
– Choosing adapted varieties and developing efficient and effective ways of maintaining plants can help the people of Kansas save time, money and effort. Sustainable ornamental crop production protects Kansas' environment.
