The Ohio State University Extension and the U. S. Department of Agriculture will host a public meeting November 8 at 6pm. The meeting will be held at the Licking County USDA Service Center located at 771 East Main St., Newark, Ohio 43055 to discuss local conservation and agriculture topics.
The discussion will begin with, “What is algae and why is there so much of it?” As OSU Extension experts explain what’s happening with algae in our lakes and what that means for farmers and other citizens.
“Why better soil grows better crops, and better pastures grow more nutritious food for grazing animals” as USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) District Conservationist explains how to make your land more productive.
Learn how USDA supports agriculture through conservation efforts and disaster relief as the NRCS State Conservationist and the Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director provide agency updates.
