Good Reading: New and Revised Fact Sheets on Ohioline

A number of new and revised fact sheets have been posted on CFAES’s Ohioline website. They give details on a wide range of subjects, from healthy nutrition to insects.

Also, two new products are available on OSU Extension’s eStore: Trends and Determinants of Farmland Sale Prices in Western Ohio 2001-2010 and Ohio Pesticide Applicator Training: A Study Guide for Commercial Industrial Vegetation Applicators.

We hope you’ll make use of these helpful resources. We ask that you spread the word among your colleagues and interested parties so they can have the most up-to-date information.
