DEMO FARM VIDEOS: New video segments offer a summary of the work being done on Ohio demo farms that people can view wherever they are, whenever they have the time.

Video series shows conservation practices on Ohio farms

Videos highlight efforts on three demonstration farms.

The Blanchard River Demonstration Farms Project, a five-year initiative showcasing and demonstrating conservation practices that will help improve agriculture’s effect on downstream water quality, has released a new video series. These videos highlight the efforts being made on three northwest Ohio farms to learn about nutrient management and the many ways Ohio farmers can keep nutrients in the fields and out of the water.

“Our goal was to be able to get the information that we share during tours of the demo farms out to more people who might not be able to come and see it firsthand,” says Aaron Heilers, Blanchard River Demonstrations Farms Network project manager. “So we developed these small video segments that offer a summarization of the work being done on the demo farms that people can view wherever they are, whenever they have the time.”

4 videos

The series includes four videos in all. It covers the water quality issue, in general; gives a background on what the project is all about; details the edge-of-field monitoring that is being conducted; and outlines recommended practices farmers need to implement to help reduce nutrient loss from their farm fields.

The videos can be found at the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation website, ofbf.org; and on the demonstration farms’ website, blancharddemofarms.org.

The five-year, $1 million Blanchard River Demonstration Farms Project is a partnership between USDA and Ohio Farm Bureau. Ohio Farm Bureau’s mission is working together for Ohio farmers to advance agriculture and strengthen our communities. Learn more at ofbf.org.
