Although Agriculture is not the major industry in Leslie County, our services are still important to our small farmers and avid gardeners. Our office is a primary source of information for insect and weed control, as well as when to plant specific crops.  We offer such services as soil testing, Pesticide Certification trainings  and many more programs.
