Since 2011, Ohio’s leading corn, soybean and wheat checkoff organizations have invested nearly $3.5 million dollars in research and education to address the water quality challenges faced by farmers and all Ohioans. That investment continues as the Ohio Corn & Wheat (OCW) and Ohio Soybean Council (OSC) have recently approved a fourth year of program funding.
Water quality has been and will continue to be one of our top priorities. This issue is complex and requires a comprehensive, research-based approach to find solutions.
Why Water Quality Matters
The Ohio Corn & Wheat (www.ohiocornandwheat.org) and Ohio Soybean Council (www.soyohio.org) launched the Why Water Quality Matters campaign to highlight the organizations’ water quality research and education programs, as well as to share the insights and perspectives of Ohio grain farmers.

About the Ohio Soybean Council
Headquartered in Worthington, the Ohio Soybean Council is governed by a volunteer farmer board, which directs the Soybean Promotion and Research Program. The program’s primary goal is to improve soybean profitability by targeting research and development projects through the investment of farmer-contributed funds called the soybean checkoff.
