Weakley County Agriculture Extension

Services Offered:

Our Weakley County Extension staff proudly services the public through programs in Agriculture, Family and Consumer Sciences, and 4-H Youth Development. 

The Weakley County Extension Office has been in Dresden since 1912, one year before the United States Department of Agriculture authorized Extension nationwide. Our mission is the same today as almost 100 years ago - to release research generated information to the public in order to improve the quality of life for local citizens.

Occupations, lifestyles and technology have changed, but the need for information has not. If anything, that need is greater today than ever. The Weakley County Extension Office is a unique partnership between Weakley County Government, The University of Tennessee and the United States Department of Agriculture.
