OSU Extension will present its 2022 regional agricultural outlook and policy meetings from late January through late March. The outlook meetings will be held throughout the state and address agricultural topics of interest in Ohio and across the Corn Belt. Topics will include a grain market outlook; agricultural law updates; the dairy industry in 2022; Ohio’s changing climate; farm policy; Farm Bill 2023; Ohio’s Senate Bill 52 related to wind and solar development; farm real estate and cash rent trends; agricultural input price projections; and federal tax updates. New to this year’s program is the statewide support of the Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association, which is pleased to partner with Extension to bring more value to its farm members’ businesses.
The outlook meetings will be hosted jointly by Union, Madison, and Champaign counties; and also individually by Defiance County, Wayne County, Clinton County, Crawford County, Pickaway County, Muskingum County, and Darke County.
