Extension Publishing Update: February

-shared by Jane Wright, interim assistant director of Extension Publishing unit, and 4-H curriculum manager

As the publishing arm of OSU Extension, Extension Publishing features the work of content creators from across the organization. The 2021 annual summary of work is available at There also has been much happening lately. In February, for the second month in a row, the 2022 Weed Control Guide for Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois is in the top spot among ANR, FCS, and CD print publications. The multi-state author team includes Mark Loux, Alyssa Essman, Doug Doohan, and Anthony Dobbels. Our most popular fact sheets are typically seasonal, so they stay at the top of the list for one or two months before interest wanes. One fact sheet, however, is so popular it’s given us a new statistic—most months at #1. This is the fourth month for Calculating Cation Exchange Capacity, Base Saturation, and Calcium Saturation. Congratulations to Steven Culman, Meredith Mann, and Cassandra Brown. Thank you to all the Extension professionals who share their expertise. New contributors in February included Risa Pesapane, Zane Raudenbush, Elizabeth Share, and Haley Zynda.
