Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources
Serving Oklahoma Agriculture and Natural Resources
Oklahoma State University's Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources is dedicated to making available science-based information relevant to improving the quality of life for the people of Oklahoma. The Division is comprised of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and two state agencies: the Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service.
Winter Safety Tips
El Niño is expected to increase the likelihood of wet, cold weather in the Southern Plains states this winter, placing a premium on the need to be safety conscious when planning and performing many of our activities. The Division asks everyone to be knowledgeable and use best management practices in and around the home, at work and on the road; wherever you are, whatever you do, think safety first.
