As of March 18, 2020, the Greenup County Cooperative Extension Service has temporary limited public access for the safety of our clientele and our employees. As of now, based on guidance from the University of Kentucky and CDC all Greenup County Extension in-person programs will be canceled through July 31, 2020.

Soil samples can still be dropped off at the office between the hours of 8:00AM-4:30PM. There is a drop off container in the office foyer with soil sample forms to put your name and phone number on and bags in which to place the soil sample form and samples.  Make sure you write your name and a unique field name on each of your samples. We will contact you to get the information we need to get those processed.

You may continue to call the Greenup County Extension Office phone at (606) 836-0201.
