    The agricultural economy is currently experiencing a downturn, with lower farm incomes, flattening land values and cash rents, and increased levels of financial stress, according to Ohio State University agricultural economists speaking at the Farm Science Review Ask the Expert sessions.  The outlook for the agricultural economy though is not as negative as we are not experiencing the conditions in the 80s when grain prices dropped, debt soared, and numerous farms went bankrupt.

    Algal blooms cost Ohio homeowners $152 million

    Aug 18, 2017

    COLUMBUS, Ohio—In a new study, AEDE researchers Allen Klaiber and David Wolf, estimate algal blooms at two Ohio lakes cost Ohio homeowners $152 million in lost property value over six years.

    Meanwhile, a related study suggests that algae is driving anglers away from Lake Erie, causing fishing license sales to drop at least 10 percent every time a bloom reaches a moderate level of health risk. Based on those numbers, a computer model projects that a severe, summer-long bloom would cause up to $5.6 million in lost fishing revenue and associated expenditures by anglers.
