The ODA announced approval for local sponsors to purchase agricultural easements on 51 family farms representing 6,107 acres in 22 counties.  

Local sponsoring organizations, which include land trusts, counties and local Soil and Water Conservation Districts, receive funding from the Clean Ohio Fund to manage the Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program. The easement ensures farms remain permanently in agricultural production. The program supports the state’s largest industry, food and agriculture.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture will begin aerial treatments designed to disrupt gypsy moth mating on 32,526 acres in 15 counties across the state.

The counties do not include Wood, Sandusky or Ottawa, but do include bordering counties.
