Agriculture and Natural Resources programsVirginia Cooperative Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources (VCE-ANR)
programs help sustain the profitability of agricultural and forestry production and enhance and protect the quality of land and water resources. These programs help the agriculture industry use the most current technology and management practices to develop strong businesses that prosper in today's economy and put research-based knowledge to work for Virginia's agriculture industry.
ANR programs are directed toward broad needs associated with the production of animals, seafood, food crops, greenhouse and nursery products, turf and forests; the financial management of agricultural enterprises; and the protection of the environment. The NRV Master Gardener Program is housed under VCE-ANR. Training and volunteering coordination is also provided.
