Wet Weather Delays Ohio Planting

Many farmers statewide question whether they can still produce crops with strong yields after such late planting,

Wet weather delays Ohio planting: Persistent rain and saturated soil conditions have delayed corn and soybean planting in much of Ohio thus far this planting season.

For the week ended May 5, only 2% of Ohio’s projected corn acreage was planted. In comparison, 20% was planted at that same time last year, and 27% is the five-year average for that time.

Soybean planting is also down, with only 1% of Ohio’s projected soybean acreage planted. In comparison, 7% was planted at that same time last year, and 9% is the five-year average for that same time.

so agronomists at The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) have published several recommendations about late-planted corn and soybeans in the latest edition of the C.O.R.N. Newsletter.

The newsletter is produced by agronomists with Ohio State University Extension, CFAES’ outreach arm, and can be found online at

Peter Thomison, an OSU Extension agronomist, and Laura Lindsey, a soybean and small grains specialist with OSU Extension, are two of several Extension experts who can provide insight into spring planting.

Thomison can be contacted at 614-292-2373 or; Lindsey can be contacted at 614-292-9080 or

Who Are Local Farm Families Leading in Conservation?



Individuals have until June 3, 2019 to nominate families 


REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (May 13, 2019) – The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) is accepting nominations to honor Ohio farm families who are leaders in conservation for the 2019 Conservation Farm Family Awards. The Conservation Farm Family Award program has recognized Ohio farm families since 1984 for their efforts in managing natural and human resources while meeting both production and conservation goals.  

“There are many farmers working hard to conserve natural resources, and this is an opportunity to recognize Ohio farm families who are going above and beyond in their conservation efforts,” Governor Mike DeWine said. “We thank farmers for their efforts, and we encourage people to participate in this program.”

“We are always so excited to take a moment and celebrate the Ohio farmers going the extra mile in the conservation practices they use on their farms,” said ODA Director Dorothy Pelanda. “I look forward to seeing the diverse ways our farmers are working to conserve our state’s natural resources and giving them the recognition they deserve.”

Five area finalists will be selected from across the state and will be recognized at the annual Farm Science Review in September. They will also receive a $400 award, courtesy of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, and be featured in the September issue of Ohio Farmer Magazine. The following photograph is from the 2018 ceremony.

Individual farmers, partnerships or family farm corporations are eligible for nomination, provided a substantial portion of their income is derived from farming. The judging is based on the nominee’s use of new and traditional conservation techniques, comprehensive management, individual initiative in applying conservation measures and the nominee’s willingness to share conservation information, experiences and philosophy with others.

Nomination forms can be obtained from local county soil and water conservation districts or by visiting ODA’s website at The forms can be submitted by email to or by mail to Conservation Farm Family Award, C/O Ohio Department of Agriculture 8995 E. Main St., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. The forms must be returned by Monday, June 3.

Group Photo to Show Global Support for Wood Co. Historical Center

To support the national campaign for preservation #ThisPlaceMatters, a group photo will be taken at the Wood County Museum, 13660 County Home Road in Bowling Green, this Thursday, May 16 at 5:30 PM in the Museum, in the “For Comfort & Convenience” exhibit. This event is free & open to the public.

This Place Matters is a national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities. During the month of May, the community is encouraged to post on social media photos of the Wood County Museum, or other cultural institutions that are important to them, using the hashtag #ThisPlaceMatters.

This campaign isn’t just about photography – it’s about telling the stories of the places we can’t live without. Through This Place Matters, the National Trust hopes to encourage and inspire an ongoing dialogue about the importance of place and preservation in all of our lives that lasts far beyond the month of May.

 More information about the campaign is available at or from the Facebook page for the National Trust.

The Wood County Historical Museum opened in 1975 after serving as the Wood County Infirmary from 1869-1971. The Wood County Historical Center & Museum is managed jointly by the Wood County Commissioners Doris I. Herringshaw, Ed.D – President; Craig LaHote – Vice President, & Dr. Theodore H. Bowlus – Member; the Wood County Historical Society; and the Wood County Park District. The Society is a community organization that makes connections between our past, present and future by capturing stories and cultivating memories of Wood County, Ohio and the County Home.
