Enhancing Agriculture and the Environment

Ohio’s diverse agricultural, horticultural and forestry industries contribute more than $100 billion to the state’s economy every year. OSU Extension agriculture and natural resources (ANR) programs assist with technology, marketing and educational support – protecting Ohio’s position in the global marketplace.

OSU Extension also works to help local residents and community leaders enhance and sustain the environment and natural areas throughout the state, balancing economic advancement with environmental sustainability.

Our ANR professionals help producers develop and expand profitable, sustainable farming and other agricultural businesses – thereby creating jobs and economic opportunity for Ohio’s citizens. They also provide leadership, collaboration, consulting, unbiased information, applied research, and access to land-grant university knowledge to address local issues and needs.

The Carroll County Extension office offers a multitude of Agricultural and Natural Resources programs throughout the year.  Classes and programs vary depending on the season and cover a wide range of topics including Livestock, Agronomy, Fertilizer Certification, Nutrient Management, and Backyard Homesteading.  A Pesticide Applicator Recertification class is offered every spring as well Tri-County Agronomy Day. We are the outreach arm of education for the Ohio State University and our goal is to be the office you think of when you need answers to questions.  Please feel free to stop in, call or email the office.
