(This amendment provides $2.5 million GF and 15.0 FTE at Virginia Cooperative Extension and Agricultural Experiment Station for high priority positions that provide significant economic benefits to localities and industry. Over the last several years, county Farm Bureaus have worked to identify critical areas in which focused state investment of additional extension specialists and agricultural agents could provide much needed industry support. Extension agents and research specialists provide localized expertise to the diverse communities and industry partners they serve, and play a vital role in facilitating partnerships, training, and developing new technologies to help the agriculture and natural resources economy grow.)
