Project Summary

 

The Outreach Education and Technical Assistance (OETA) project intends to provide education and technical assistance to the beginning, socially disadvantaged, and veteran farmers in the state of Ohio. Despite the increasing number of farmers from the mentioned categories, they seem to lack information on services and network available in the agricultural sector that could help them to increase the production, and then contribute to the mitigation of food insecurity threatening some parts of State of Ohio. Therefore, through face-to-face and online training, this project aims at boosting the willingness and the ability of targeted farmers to own and efficiently manage their farms. This project will also connect agribusiness students to experienced farmers for practical training and potential mentorships. This apprenticeship opportunity for our students is in line with efforts from policymakers to ensure and increase the availability of a well-trained and productive workforce in the US agricultural sector.
