New Kent Co. Ag Agent

Phillip Sylvester, Kent Co., Ag Agent; phillip@udel.edu

Hello, my name is Phillip Sylvester and I have recently joined the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension as the new Agricultural Agent for Kent County. My role as the Kent County Agricultural Agent is to assist and support the county’s agricultural producers and industry through Extension programs in row crop production, pasture and hay production, vegetable production, and environmental issues. Previously, I worked with Monsanto, where I was a research assistant on soybean breeding projects. Prior to that, I worked for Southern States as a field sales associate. My education includes a degree in Plant Protection from the University of Delaware. Currently, I reside outside of Felton and produce grain and vegetable crops on my farm. I am excited to begin this position and look forward to working with Delaware growers. I can be reached at the University of Delaware Paradee Center in Dover at 302-730-4000.
