All Iowans, no matter your jobs or interests, can benefit from this wealth of information. Take the initiative to improve your daily life: start a project; check rental rates; become a Master Gardener; or join 4-H for opportunities for youth to develop skills they can use now and throughout their life.

Mission: Our core purpose is to engage citizens through research-based educational programs. We extend the resources of Iowa State University across the state. We accomplish our goals by developing diverse and meaningful partnerships. Through our purpose and partnerships, we increase the ability of Iowans to make informed decisions by applying relevant, needs-driven resources to create significant impact in our state.

Remember to watch for farm equipment as harvest season begins‼️

Remember to watch for farm equipment as harvest season begins‼️

Road Safety Tips During Harvest, Tip 1️⃣

🛑 Slow down immediately when you see farm equipment ahead of you on the road.
- Farm equipment isn’t very fast, think 15-20 mph on the road on average perhaps.
- If you are driving 55 mph, you are covering around 80 feet per second; it won’t take very long to be right on top of a slow moving vehicle.

Stay safe.
