An internet resource you can trust

eXtension will be officially launched today in a virtual ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture will do the honors from the USDA Ag Outlook Forum in Washington DC.

eXtension is unlike any other search engine or information-based website. It's a space where university content providers can gather and produce new educational and information resources on wide-ranging topics.

Because it's available to students, researchers, clinicians, professors, as well as the general public, at any time from any Internet connection, eXtension helps solve real-life problems in real time.
