Did your conference get canceled? Looking to fill the void of the big basketball tournament? OSU Extension Agricultural and Natural Resources Educators are here to assist.
Agriculture and Natural Resources Madness: A Tournament of Education consists of 64 educational events broken into daily brackets. Each day, a virtual educational session will be held at 9:00 a.m., noon and 3:00 p.m. at no charge. All events are listed at https://go.osu.edu/agmadness.
Brackets will change daily. Topics will cover a variety of agricultural subjects like hemp, pastures & grazing, fruit and vegetable production, farm management and more. When possible, live question and answer opportunities are included.
This week’s bracket includes Direct Marketing (March 31), Farm Management (April 1), Forages, Pastures and Grazing (April 2) and Agricultural Safety (April 3).
To meet the needs of our clientele amid COVID-19, we began this virtual programming on March 24 with a webinar for produce growers with assistance on operating amid COVID-19. We followed up with a food safety webinar for consumers that is still available for viewing.
The agriculture crisis website has also been updated to provide resources for the agriculture community. To access these resources, visit https://go.osu.edu/agcrisis.
