Wartime efforts

Extension workers used every means at their disposal to contact farm families and give them the technical information and assistance to enable them to increase the volume and efficiency of their war production. County Extension workers made a total of 82,970 farm and home visits to 50,422 different farms. A total of 215,775 farm people called at County Extension offices for wartime farm and home information and assistance.

Today, Clemson Extension agents continue to provide a wide variety of research-based information to the people of South Carolina. Agents are located in all 46 counties and at the University's five Research and Education Centers.
