Abstract

The unofficial beginning of Cooperative Extension is traced to 1903, Kaufman County, Texas when Dr. Seaman A. Knapp initiated demonstrations with Mexican boll weevil in cotton. Knapp once said, “What a man hears, he will not believe, what he says, he may believe, but what he does he must believe.”

An interactive computer version of a traditional Extension educational publication was developed for delivery over the Internet. Large Trees for Kentucky Landscapes is a 40-page publication describing suggested species adapted to Kentucky conditions. It is illustrated with numerous color photographs. This type of Extension publication has a limited distribution because it is relatively expensive to publish. The digital version of this publication allows for inclusion of additional information and illustrations. It was designed to be interactive with the user selecting the species and the information about that species from a screen menu. The user also has the option to print a one page informational sheet on that species. The initial audience for this digital version of the publication is the county Extension agent and Division of Forestry personnel, but it may also be useful at retail horticultural outlets.
