The Ohio House of Representative approved Senate Bill 150 (SB 150), a bill that will now require one farmer per farm operation to be certified to apply fertilizer.
“The Ohio Soybean Association (OSA) and the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association (OCWGA) have always taken the quality of Ohio’s water very seriously,” said Brent Hostetler, OCWGA president and Madison County farmer. “Both organizations have worked together through the entire process of this bill to assure that it addresses environmental needs but does not include overly burdensome requirements for Ohio family farmers.”
“Moving forward, both organizations will continue to emphasize to legislators and agency officials the importance of practical, science-based solutions,” said Hostetler.
