OCW Strike Teams

We have created three strike teams to dive deep into issues of critical importance to Ohio corn and small grain farmers: Ethanol, carbon markets and vomitoxin.

Each strike team has been charged with learning about its respective issue, developing a report and recommending actions for the checkoff and association boards to consider. This process will help the OCW boards make sound decisions backed with facts and logic.

Strike teams will have an aggressive schedule. There will be a checkpoint in late March to determine if the team has completed its task or if they should reconvene after planting.
