Hydroponic Crop Program: Introduction

The Hydroponic Vegetable Program began in the spring of 1999 with a USDA/CSREES grant, along with additional funds from The Ohio State University Extension. The program is a cooperative effort of Ohio State Univerisity’s Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) and the Agricultural Business Enhancement Center (ABE). The program is designed to foster hydroponic greenhouse vegetable businesses in Ohio by providing horticultural, marketing, business planning and greenhouse design support. The support is provided by direct contact with individuals, seminars, tours, and interactive internet websites.
