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 – protecting 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, consulting, unbiased information, applied research, and access to land-grant university knowledge to address local issues and needs.

Chris Bruynis, Extension Educator, welcomes you to Agriculture in Ross County. Agricultural land use is dictated by the glacial boundaries that cross Ross County. The northern and western portions are glaciated with level to rolling topography and soils that are well-suited to the intensive production of row crops. The southern and eastern portions of the county are unglaciated, with more hilly topography and soils that are better suited for forestry and forage crop production.
