Ohio State University Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources empowers Ohio’s agriculture and natural resources communities, provides outreach and education based on unbiased research, and cultivates relationships to strengthen the economic viability and quality of life for Ohioans.

Welcome to Ohio State University Extension! This website is just one part of the ANR onboarding process, which includes in-services on the basics and resources for you to refer back to as needed. You will find that no two days on the job are the same. Here you will find much of the information you will need to know to getting started, including:

  • working with stakeholders,
  • developing a specialization,
  • joining ANR and Extension-related professional organizations,
  • establishing county programs,
  • participating in on-farm research,
  • completing annual reporting
  • and, of course, topic-specific resources to help answer questions from your county clientele.

Visit the tabs above and explore content as needed. If you have questions about any of the material, a list of key contacts is provided on each page – don’t hesitate to reach out. We are excited to have you as part of the ANR team!
