Many of these programs are provided by the local county Extension office. But then, the pandemic has changed everything.

To meet this information need, the Hardin County Extension office is partnering with the Ohio State University AgCrops Team to provide virtual (online) winter meetings that a farmer or crop consultant can participate at the time of the presentation or later as a recording.
