ERIE COUNTY, OH – Agriculture in 2010: Issues & Agendas for Erie County (Interview)

January 11, 2010

Agriculture is the backbone of Erie County, OH; yet, few reports concentrate on the significance this industry generates. In Ohio agriculture contributes 98 billion to the economy each year according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture. Food consumption alone hovers around 35 billion.

The following interviews discuss this profession and what to expect from organizational branches in 2010.

Listen to the full interview through our podcast “On The Wire” available below; wherein Erie Soil and Water (ESWCD), the OSU extension and OEFFA discuss challenges and their 2010 forecast.
