Ohio State University Extension brings the knowledge of the university directly to you. Our Extension specialists and program staff fulfill the land-grant mission of The Ohio State University by interpreting knowledge and research developed by Extension and other faculty and staff at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, Ohio State main campus, and other land-grant universities – so Ohioans can use the scientifically based information to better their lives, businesses and communities. Our outreach efforts bring this information to growers, gardeners, families and youth across Ohio and beyond. Explore our Extension/Outreach topic areas to learn more.
