KINGSVILLE, Ohio — Each year, researchers from Ohio State University (OSU) showcase their research during interactive field days.
This year, grape production and vineyard management research will be showcased at the Northeast Ohio Grape Field Day at the Ashtabula Agricultural Research Station July 19.
Farmers and others interested in meeting the researchers and viewing research plots can visit the research station, 2625 S. Ridge Road E, Kingsville, from 1-4:30 p.m.
