Horticulture and Home Pest News

The consumer horticulture team has launched a new website! Visit Horticulture and Home Pest News for home garden information. 


Iowa Master Gardener

The mission of the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Master Gardener Program is to provide current, research-based, home horticulture information and education to the citizens of Iowa through programs and projects. Through their participation in educational activities, Master Gardeners also increase their own personal knowledge in horticulture. Master Gardeners extend Iowa State University Extension and Outreach’s consumer horticulture education programs through volunteer activity.


Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic

The ISU Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic staff can diagnose plant health problems caused by diseases, insects or the environment. In addition, they also can identify insects, plants, weeds and fungi. Once they have diagnosed your disease or identified your insect pest, they can advise you on the best course of action to take.


Small Farm Sustainability

The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach program in Small Farm Sustainability exists to open the door to relationships and resources relevant to the pursuit of sustainability for Iowa’s smaller-scale, entrepreneurial farm enterprises. By sharing science-based information, providing program leadership, and facilitating collaboration, small farms promotes planning and profit potential in specialty ag ventures that tend to increase stewardship, diversity, and resilience on the Iowa farmscape.
