The Agriculture Division is responsible for:
Implementing farm conservation practices that keep soil in the fields and out of waterways. We co-manage the Blue Creek Conservation Area with the Toledo Area Metroparks to demonstrate these practices. We rent conservation tillage equipment to local farmers.
Assist with drainage and environmentally sound practices for water management.
