Ohio Farmland Leasing Update

If you are farming on leased land or are leasing your farmland you won’t want to miss this! As of July 21, 2022 a new law on crop farm leases has gone into effect . This new law addresses farm crop lease landlords who are in a farmland leasing aggreement that does not address termination. If a landlord is wanting to terminate the lease they must do so by delivering a written notice of termination to the tenant by September 1 of the current lease period. This affects verbal leases and written leases that fails to include termination provisions. If you are wanting to gain more information on the new law you can attend the Ohio Farmland Leasing Update Webinar on August 11, 2022 from 8:00-10:00am. If you can’t make it during that time the webinar will be recorded so you can watch it or re-watch it at anytime. Below you will find the flyer will  all of the information that you will need about the webinar as well as an article by Peggy Kirk Hall that answers some commonly asked questions regarding this new law.

Get involved! Take the Broadband Now Survey!

OSU Extension is part of the Accelerate Broadband Pilot with the Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission. All the help we can get with having local individuals take the survey below will help inform efforts to get better broadband for everyone.
Broadband Now – Take the Survey – https://connectingappalachia.org/get-involved/
In the last several years, we have learned the major importance of connecting homes and businesses to better internet services. Some communities and especially rural areas are not able to utilize the internet for distance learning, telehealth doctor visits, online sales and businesses, and other essential uses. In our region, 69% of households are unserved or underserved, with less than 25/3 download and upload speeds. There are historic opportunities to access federal and state programs to help defray the cost of building broadband infrastructure, and we want your help to understand better the existing state of broadband in our region. Please take the online survey for residential and business broadband users. Your comments will inform the development of a broadband plan of action for the region. Thank you!
