Albany- All state agencies are slashing ing their budgets, but millions of dollars in cuts to the Cooperative Extension Service will affect our farmers.

Farmers go to extension agents for advice and information on everything from pest problems to marketing their crops. Farmers in some rural counties don't have agents and will continue to go without since some open positions won't be filled until state money problems improve.

"A lot of them are having to deal with agents in a neighboring county," said Lenny Wells, with the Dougherty County Extension Service. "An agent that already has a county that he's responsible for and he's still trying to help out with the county next door."

Governor Perdue's budget plan would cut $2.6 million from the extension service's budget.
