Addressing the challenges that threaten Ohio’s clean water resources is an important priority for the agriculture community. The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF) has released its fourth report detailing its efforts to ensure safe and healthy water for the state.
The Water Quality Status Report provides a list of action items being taken by farmers, Farm Bureau and many collaborative partners to implement new farming techniques and best practices to protect water while farming productively. It emphasizes actions in the Western Lake Erie Basin (WLEB), but water quality is a statewide issue and Farm Bureau is addressing it throughout the state. Farm Bureau also has established statewide partnerships to identify comprehensive solutions to complex water issues.
The report and additional information about Ohio Farm Bureau’s Water Quality Action Plan are available online at farmersforwater.org. The report also will be delivered to Ohio Farm Bureau members with their July/August publications.
Among the accomplishments outlined in the status report:
- The number of farmers who have completed fertilizer certification training.
- On farm research results
- An update on the Blanchard River Demonstration Farms Network
- A review of county Farm Bureau water quality grant recipients and their projects
Through its policies it brings together people in the agricultural community and invests in building vibrant communities that support agriculture.Future employees, leaders
