Agriculture

With more than 480 farms covering 217,000 acres in Washington County, and adding more than $7 million in annual production; agriculture is still a strong part of our community. From the open space agriculture provides to the way of life many of us enjoy, keeping a robust and diverse ag base is important to us.
 
Utah State University is not only a land-grant university but also a space-grant university that has supported and advanced Utah agriculture for nearly 100 years bringing applied research from the campus to the farms and ranches around the state.
