Agronomy Update Scheduled

The Tuscarawas County office of Ohio State University Extension will sponsor an Agronomy Update on Thursday, August 26, 1pm to 4pm at Durbin Farms.  The farm is located at 4227 Durbin Road SE, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

Many agricultural products continue to be in short supply, and this shortage may continue.  What will these supply shortages mean for harvest?  Will the shortages continue into planting season next year? Dr. John Fulton, OSU Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering, will discuss the situation and provide management recommendations.

Carbon sequestration, carbon credits, and carbon markets are popular terms right now.  Nearly every farm publication has an article about the role agriculture can have in this arena.  There are many factors to consider prior to entering into a carbon market agreement.  Mike Estadt, OSU Extension Educator, ANR, has studied this topic and will address factors farmers must consider.

The program will wrap up with a discussion of agronomy and farm management resources available from Ohio State University Extension and a presentation by Matt and Luke Durbin discussing lessons they learned from building a farm shop. 

The agenda includes:

  • Parts and Equipment Shortages are Real – Be Prepared: Thoughts on 2021 Harvest & 2022 Planting
    • Dr. John Fulton, OSU Food, Agriculture, and Biological Engineering
  • Are You Ready for Carbon Markets?
    • Mike Estadt, OSU Extension Educator, ANR, Pickaway County
  • OSU Extension Agronomy & Farm Management Resources
    • Chris Zoller, OSU Extension Educator, ANR, Tuscarawas County
  • Lessons Learned from Building a Farm Shop
    • Matt & Luke Durbin, Durbin Farms

There is no fee to attend, but pre-registration is requested no later than August 24.  To register, please email zoller.1@osu.edu or call 330-339-2337.
