New Technologies for Ag Extension: The purpose of the New Technologies for Ag Extension Program (NTAE) is to increase the capacity of each State to contribute expertise and content to the development of eXtension, a national web-based information and education delivery system that provides direct access to science-based educational resources from land-grant and other partner institutions about subjects of high importance to the general public. This initiative will dramatically change how the Cooperative Extension System (CES) does business with its customers. In FY 2007, CSREES will support partial deployment of eXentsion and enable a technology-conscious nation to make use of the valuable information and education that CES has to offer.
