CFAES Impact: July/August 2023

  1. Five innovative research projects were awarded funding from the new AgTech Innovation Hub, a multimillion-dollar collaboration between Ohio State and Nationwide.

  2. Research shows that Ohio farmers and those across the eastern Corn Belt and Great Lakes region value conservation, according to Robyn Wilson, CFAES professor of risk analysis and decision science and acting associate director of the college’s School of Environment and Natural Resources. 

  3. Farmers, producers, and anyone who works outdoors should beware: When the weather is warmer, you’re at a higher risk for heat illness, which can come on suddenly with many people unaware they’re in danger.

  4. Celebrate Ohio agriculture, communities, and children at the 2023 Dean’s Charity Steer Show on Aug. 1, at the Ohio State Fair’s Voinovich Livestock and Trade Center. 

    Teams will consist of a team captain, a team champion, an experienced Ohio 4-H youth, and a steer in the show ring.
