The Cooperative Extension Service offers a host of educational programs and services.
If you do not see what you are looking for below, please contact the Faulkner County
Extension Office for assistance.
Agriculture is the largest industry in Arkansas. Faulkner County has seen great change
in agriculture over the years. However, agriculture still has a very strong presence
in the county. In Faulkner County you will find a diverse agricultural background
including row crops, pasture, forages, beef cattle, dairy cattle and commercial horticulture.
The Extension Agriculture Agents work in many areas such as beef cattle, dairy cattle,
small ruminants, brucellosis, forage samples, soil testing and weed ID.
Agriculture is part of everyone's everyday life from the time you get up in the morning
until you go to bed in the evening. Faulkner County produces many different crops
such as wheat, corn, soybeans, edamame and rice.
This area of Horticulture is an ever growing market in Faulkner County. We have producers
in varying sizes from small backyard gardens to farms with over 500 acres. There
are over 50 commercial producers in the county. The agents work with gardens, orchards,
commercial greenhouses, lawn care professionals and Farmers' Market vendors.
Homeowners looking for information on almost any topic related to landscape, gardening,
soil, lawn care, weed and insect ID have come to the right place!
Faulkner County Extension received the Extension Excellence Award-County Team in 2013 for creation of the "Teaching Garden,” an educational program to meet the needs of
the local community. The Teaching Garden uses an interdisciplinary approach that
focuses on growing fresh vegetables using raised beds and methods that are practical
for homeowners. It is located at Freyaldenhoven Nursery in Conway.
The Faulkner County office has a large call volume when it comes to turfgrass production.
This includes homeowners and lawn care professionals. The agents assist with plant
disease samples and management practices.
The Turfgrass Research program at the University of Arkansas evaluates several varieties of zoysiagrass,
bermudagrass, and tall fescue turf as part of the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program.
The City of Conway, Arkansas was granted Tree City USA status in March, 2007. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation
in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service, the Urban and Community Forestry and
the National Association of State Foresters.
The Conway Tree Board hosts an Annual Arbor Day celebration that draws over 750 people
in attendance. The Board works to plant, preserve and properly maintain the tree
canopy of Conway and Faulkner County.

The 4-H Youth program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the
knowledge, attitudes and skills needed to become competent, caring and contributing
citizens of the world. This mission is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources
of the land-grant university system, along with the involvement of caring adults.
The goals of the 4-H program are to:
Provide informal, educational programs for youth in grades K-13 (one year out of high
Encourage responsibility, community awareness and character development in youth
Strengthen skills for adults working with youth through publications and training
Improve community partnerships and collaborations
Youth in 4-H learn about citizenship, leadership, cooking, arts and crafts, mechanics
and technology, horticulture, agriculture, and other subjects. Each member selects
at least one 4-H project and this project serves as the program's cornerstone. A
4-H project is a practical, but challenging, planned course of activity on a specific
subject. Projects involve setting goals and evaluating progress through maintaining
their individual 4-H Project Record Book.
Each year, the Faulkner County 4-H Foundation directly awards thousands of dollars
in scholarships to outstanding Faulkner County 4-H members. Additionally, youth are
eligible to earn more than $80,000 in college scholarships at the state level for
their 4-H work.
