Agriculture in Alaska is distinct. Growers, farmers and gardeners must contend with unpredictably short growing seasons, yearly infestations of various insects, long daylight hours and even the occasional mid-season frost. While consumers may have a difficult time finding informed advice from "Outside,” local Extension agriculture and horticulture agents and specialists are highly trained professionals who experience the same challenges as residents.
