Ohio State researchers study how farmers adapt to climate change.
Additional rainfall in Ohio and most of the Eastern corn belt region has led to concerns such as algae blooms in Lake Erie from farming runoff, as well as more difficulties for farmers getting into their fields in the spring and autumn to plant and complete other fieldwork.
With their Agroecosystem Resilience Project, Ohio State University researchers attempt to understand better how farmers adjust to shifting weather patterns.
Across the board, I think we’re hoping that we’ll better understand what climate change means for the Eastern corn belt,” said Robyn Wilson, project leader and professor of risk analysis and decision science at Ohio State University’s School of Environment and Natural Resources.

The Division of Environmental Services (DES) offers laboratory services to other departments of the Ohio EPA, as well as state and municipal governments. The division examines water, air, sediment, and tissue samples, as well as provides technical support, laboratory inspections, and laboratory certification throughout Ohio.
By analyzing samples, collecting reliable data, and offering technical help, we can protect human health and monitor the environment in Ohio, ensuring a good quality of life.

Every day, we witness terrible proof of the harm being done to our planet: climate change, plastic pollution, and species extinction. But we also see answers all around us, practically pleading with us to accept them: solar and wind power, electric vehicles and buses, more walkable and “bikeable” cities, recycling and mending things rather than tossing them away, and so on.
Our aim at Environment Ohio is to turn the power of our imaginations and ideas into change that makes our world a greener and healthier environment for everybody.
A clean environment is not an unintended consequence of American wealth. Rather, a clean environment is a prerequisite for real success. We aim to change more hearts and minds by researching and educating the public.
