Attached are surveys to collect data for the Ohio Cropland Values and Cash Rents Survey.
The goal is to have enough data to summarize and publish every region in Ohio, although recently we have only had enough data points to publish western Ohio regions. We also collect surveys from ag lenders, rural appraisers and professional farm management firms in the state. Completed surveys can be returned by March 31st (by mail or scanned and emailed).

On June 7, thirty-four 4-H youth and volunteers of Morrow County climbed aboard research vessels for a hands-on adventure on a Science Cruise by Rattlesnake Island!
While thirty feet from the bottom of the lake, excited youth readied with research equipment measured wind speed, temperature of air and water, wave patterns, depth of the lake, and even got to bring up material from the bottom of the lake! After collecting this important data, they got to go trawling for fish and collect plankton!
