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.

The goal of the Agriculture and Natural Resource program area of Miami County is to provide residents with information and guidance on new technology and techniques that are being perfected through applied research. Call, email or stop by the office with your questions about planning your garden, insects, farming, land leases, and much more. We are always looking to provide the residents of Miami County with ways to apply OSU’s research to community needs.
