How are Research and Extension integrated in land-grant systems throughout the United States? This question was answered by Directors of Agriculture Experiment Stations and Cooperative Extension who completed an online survey. Ninety-two individuals responded to the survey; 53% were with AES, and 47% were with CES. Interaction tended to occur through joint appointments and cohousing of faculty. Best-integrated practices revolved around a commodity or specific issue such as water quality. Funding was a common catalyst for collaboration in the form of competitive RFPs, internal grants, or special accounts.
