Clark County Government Building

Clark County is located in southern Indiana and named after George Rogers Clark. George Rogers Clark was an American explorer, soldier, Indian agent, and territorial governor. Along with Meriwether Lewis, Clark helped lead the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803 to 1806 across the Louisiana Purchase to the Pacific Ocean, and claimed the Pacific Northwest for the United States. Clark County was established in 1801 and is strategically positioned across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky.

Port of Indiana - JeffClark County is a major transportation hub with Interstate Highway Access, railroads, close proximity to the Clark Regional Airport and the Louisville International Airport, and direct access to shipping on the Ohio River with the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville facility.  The Port of Indiana - Jeffersonville is one of three State of Indiana ports that operate as Foreign Trade Zones. Approximately 2 million tons of cargo moves through the Ports of Indiana - Jeffersonville annually.   

River Ridge Commerce CenterClark County has diversified its economic base and continues to expand in exciting new directions. River Ridge Commerce CenterĀ© is an example of a new wave of economic redevelopment taking place in the county. The River Ridge Commerce CenterĀ© was formerly the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant. The plant manufactured gunpowder during World War II, the Korean War, and the Viet Nam War. Congress declared the property surplus to its needs in 1998 and authorized 6000 acres of the property to be conveyed to the River Ridge Development Authority for economic development and other parts of the property to be used for expansion of the Charlestown State Park.

Purdue Extension, Clark County, ANR Consulting is still up and going

With the COVID-19 pandemic, Purdue Extension, Clark County needed to adjust its way of offering services to the community. Notable among them is Ag and Natural Resource (ANR) consultation services which still remain available but slightly modified. Except for walk-ins which is not encouraged unless it is absolutely necessary, we continue to offer consultation services via email, phone and text. Where these contact options are not able to provide a remedy and it requires a site visit, we would arrange to do so while keeping to Purdue policy on social distancing and any other safety requirements.

ANR consultations cover a very wide range of areas and topics notable among them are gardening, fish pond management, soil testing, lawn management, ornamental and fruit tree care, plant pest and disease identification and control, and corn and soy bean agronomy.

While these consultations occur at any time, the cropping season from April to September is when we have increased consultation contacts with the community. The community has adjusted very quickly to the current reality and we continue to get high numbers of consultation contacts by email, text and calls.

Please continue to bring your ANR needs and inquiries to Clark County Extension by calling the Extension office at 812-256-4591 or sending an email to We have stepped up our services on soil testing to include detailed instructions on how to sample the soil, how to handle it to avoid contamination, how to process and where to mail soil samples to. When your test results come back, Purdue Extension will help you with interpreting the results and provide you with recommendations on amendment needs including fertilizer and Ag lime types and rates to use. Your plant pest and disease problems also continue to be handled both locally and with the Purdue Plant and Pest Diagnostic lab where necessary.

Purdue is an equal access/equal opportunity University
