We provide many publications, reports, and educational materials. These are primarily authored by USDA staff but include publications by University partners and other cooperative specialists. Select the desired category from the list above.

Our publications are grouped into 3 series, Cooperative Information Reports (CIR-series), Research Reports (RR-series), and Service Reports (SR-series):
