Cooperative Extension plays a unique role by bringing the University of Arizona to both urban and rural Maricopa County. Maricopa County is home to almost four million people, each with unique needs. Extension provides practical information and education to help people make their lives better. Outreach efforts translate relevant University of Arizona research into effective practices people can put to immediate use in their homes and businesses. A copy of our 2014 Annual Report can be found here.

Our Advisory Board members, appointed by our County Supervisors, help support and direct our programs. The Board advises the County Extension Director and the Extension faculty on community needs to make science useful for people in their everyday lives. A list of our Board can be found here.

19th Annual Arizona Women in Agriculture Conference

Join us for the 19th Annual Arizona Women in Agriculture Conference.

You are invited next Friday, May 29, to view a demonstration field trial of herbicide performance when applied early for spring transition. The site is on a practice baseball field at the Tempe Diablo Stadium complex that was first treated on May 4. Sapphire*, Kerb*, Revolver*, Monument*, and Katana* are being evaluated and compared for ryegrass removal and bermudagrass transition.
An additional test demonstrates Poa annua control with applications of Exonerate*.

The field trials can be viewed at your leisure from 8:00 am to 11:00 am on Friday, May 29. Park in the lot off Alameda (east of 48th St) next to the main entrance to the Diablo Stadium. From the parking lot next to the first practice field, take the path going west to the second field and the demonstration will be in the outfield area through the gate.
