Resources available to manage farm stress

There is no doubt that every farmer, and even those in the larger agriculture community, is feeling the stress of year-over-year falling crop prices, trade standoffs and a soggy spring. Equally frustrating may be the feeling of being not sure where to turn for answers. Recognizing the need for a one-stop shop that can offer recommendations and solutions for agriculture’s most stressful issues, Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences has put together a website with resources for Ohio farmers.

On the website, Ohio State has convened a task force of experts to address concerns and offer the best science-based recommendations for and solutions to the issues farmers are facing such as weather impacts, tariffs, and low commodity prices.

These resources are not only for farmers, but for the families and friends who support them as well as anyone associated with the ag community or farming industry.

There also is a special section to submit a question.
