Economic Development Agribusiness Partners at Clemson University, South Carolina

Agribusiness Partners

Clemson’s statewide research, extension and regulatory programs (Public Service Activities) enhance economic growth in South Carolina agriculture and forestry industries through a continuous process of identifying critical issues, finding solutions and transferring knowledge to farmers, foresters and land managers. From its beginnings, Clemson has been part of a national system of land-grant universities, partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to help South Carolina’s agriculture and forestry producers compete in a global economy. Research scientists develop new production technologies, investigate value-added products and develop new plant varieties. Regulatory agents monitor for plant and animal diseases and alert producers of potential threats. Extension personnel share science-based information on sustainable timber crop and livestock production systems, turfgrass and ornamental horticulture, and organic and alternative crops.
