The economic outlook and related policy concerns for farm and horticultural industries are the focus of the recently announced series of OSU Policy & Outlook Meetings set to begin in early November. This year’s program includes traditional outlook discussions on grain, livestock, input costs, policy and consumer factors effecting Ohio agriculture. New this year are three meetings targeting the “Green Industry” and the growing number of firms in the region for nursery production, landscaping, greenhouse production and related services. Several other meetings are arranged that address local communities and their economies. Details on locations, topics and background material are all available through the OSU Policy & Outlook Program website (http://aede.osu.edu/programs/outlook).
