UGA Cooperative Extension

Madison County Extension Office:
Agriculture & Natural Resources

Broad River

Madison County has a diverse array of agricultural and natural resource concerns, from nutrient management on fields and pastures, to hay and pasture management, to water quality for wells and surface water.

Adam Speir, Madison County Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources, handles questions and issues related to these issues as well as many homeowner issues related to gardens, plants, lawns, and wildlife. The county Extension agent for ANR also makes recommendations to growers and homeowners based on soil, water, and forage test results. Ask the ANR Agent.
