    The LSU AgCenter is a wealth of information. LSU AgCenter can give the consumer answers for their garden, family or home. The website  has detailed information on the top ribbon. Check out the category Topics. Some of the topics include Environment & Natural Resource, Lawn & Garden, Food & Health and so much more.  Publications is another excellent resource. Publications are an important way to get research-based education material to the public. Most of the publications are available online.  There is a listing of publications by looking at their catalog. The News & Events category produces news release for print, radio, television and social media. 

    I could write more but instead I recommend going to LSU AgCenter website. You won't be disappointed.
