Extension educators tend to work in a vacuum in educating producers. There are a number of reasons for this. In some situations, extension reporting systems only count specialist led contacts in reports to state and federal agencies then there is less incentive to partner with interest groups and other nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in educational programming. Also, there can sometimes be backlash for specialists from partnering with one NGO over others who operate in the same areas. These and other reasons can limit the desire for specialists to team up with NGOs to deliver educational programs. This session will feature representatives from two longtime partners – Texas A&M Agrilife Extension and Texas Corn Producers as each discusses the benefits from collaborating to their own organizations and their producers in the State of Texas.
