Enhancing Agriculture and the Environment

Ohio’s diverse agricultural, horticultural and forestry industries contribute more than $100 billion to the state’s economy every year. OSU Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) programs assist with technology, marketing, and educational support to protect Ohio’s position in the global marketplace.

OSU Extension also works to help local residents and community leaders enhance and sustain the environment and natural areas throughout the state, balancing economic advancement with environmental sustainability.

Our ANR professionals help producers develop and expand profitable, sustainable farming and other agricultural businesses, thereby creating jobs and economic opportunity for Ohio’s citizens. They also provide leadership, collaboration, consultation, unbiased information, applied research, and access to land-grant university knowledge to address local issues and needs.
