Water quality concerns continue to be at the forefront of environmental-impact discussions across many industries. Since agriculture occupies much of the land area in Ohio, adapting farming operations to include “best management practices” has been an area of focus for agricultural producers, governmental agencies, and other stakeholders working to contribute to solutions. As water quality concerns remain, so do opportunities for reviewing the current research and considering adopting practices that work for your situation. Join The Ohio State University Extension Water Quality Team and guest speakers for a webinar series discussing several timely topics in preparation for the 2021 growing season.

Speakers include Jason Hartschuh, OSU Extension Educator from Crawford County, Sarah Noggle, OSU Extension Educator from Paulding County, and Rachel Cochran, Water Quality Extension Associate for Paulding, Defiance, and Van Wert Counties.
