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.

Locally, Pressley Buurma is the Seneca County ANR Educator.  Pressley joined the Seneca County team in May 2023.  She is a graduate of the University of Findlay. Pressley is not only here to answer questions about raising animals and crops but also those seeking information on any agricultural topics (farming, landscaping/gardening, invasive species, Laws and Regulations, conservation, and many other topics).  She can be reached by calling the office 419-447-9722 or email buurma.20@osu.edu
