Ohio State Team Promotes Nature-based 'ECO-farming'

PIKETON, Ohio – A team of scientists and educators from Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences now spells farming with three extra letters.
The group studies, demonstrates and teaches about what it calls “ECO-farming,” a new approach aimed at boosting a farm’s production and profits while shrinking its environmental footprint.
 
The team will give a workshop on the topic, called “ECO-Farming, Biodiversity and Soil Health: A Systems Approach to Enhancing Productivity,” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 14, as part of the 35th annual conference of the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association(OEFFA).
