Why C.O.R.N.?

The goal of C.O.R.N. is to provide Ohio's crop industry with the quickest, most accurate information to deal with changing crop conditions. C.O.R.N. is produced through a weekly telephone conference and sent via e-mail and fax to hundreds of Ohio farmers and input industry personnel. C.O.R.N. content is the basis for newsletters, and other mass media efforts in Extension. In one way or another, almost every crop producer in Ohio has been exposed to information from this newsletter.

Our users say things like:

"Excellent, easy to read and understand."

"I feel C.O.R.N. helps to keep me timely in confirming those things my scouts and I have located and in reminding us to keep certain management and scouting aspects in perspective. Please continue it."

"Overall very good information throughout the growing season. Very valuable in the ever changing spring situations."
