Welcome to the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and
Extension Center at Overton.
This Center was established in 1967 to house personnel and programs of the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station and Texas Cooperative Extension for the purpose of addressing the needs of East Texas and its citizens. Research and extension education in agriculture, family and consumer sciences, youth and economic development constitute the programs. Research is conducted on agricultural topics pertinent to the East Texas ecosystem. Extension activities provide information to interested clientele and support local county programs. We appreciate your interest in our programs and will strive to provide the information you seek to enhance your successful accomplishment of your goals.
