dc.descriptionWhile many departments at Ohio State focus on research initiatives that rely on farmer adoption of best management practices as solutions to promote sustainable food systems and environmental quality, few opportunities exist to gauge practical hurdles for producers to implement research-based solutions to issues of concern to Ohioans as a whole. At CFAES, department specialists work with county Extension educators to involve producers in communities throughout the state to collect data in practical, real-world settings. Partnering with producers throughout the state allows researchers to collect data quickly for a large geographic area, but the benefits of collaborating with producers for problem-solving has impacts beyond cost savings. Understanding of feasibility for producers to implement research-based best management practices is critical for Ohio State's research efforts to have practical application that may result in real impact to Ohio communities. Providing stakeholders opportunities to participate allows them to trial new or different practices in the field, and learn through experience. Seeing these practices work firsthand increases the odds that they will be adopted and lead to the intended changes. Extension research brings Ohio producers into the research process as partners and creates stakeholder investment in solutions. Engaging producers in scientific research allows researchers the opportunity to develop relationships, gain understanding of community priorities and concerns, increase awareness of research conducted at Ohio State, and enhance public understanding of the scientific process.Partnering with producers also enhances practical understanding of the issues that Extension programs intend to address. The session will familiarize participants with the value of community engagement in problem-solving, provide them with the resources to begin building relationships with stakeholders, and introduce opportunities to get involved in statewide research efforts. Highlights of the presentation will include a panel of stakeholder partners who will discuss what information is valuable to them when deciding to partner on a research project and a question-and-answer session on starting the conversations with community members.en_US

dc.description.abstractLand-grant universities are charged with creating knowledge and applying that knowledge in ways that improve the lives of our stakeholders. Ohioans today face grand challenges that need scientific solutions. A Google search looking to solve a problem rarely results in a scientific solution to a problem. Engaging community partners in scientific problem-solving creates investment in the solutions, and in turn, increases the likelihood of adoption that leads to impact in Ohio communities. The presenters will familiarize attendees with the value of community engagement in problem-solving, provide them with the resources to begin building relationships with stakeholders, and introduce opportunities to get involved in statewide research efforts. Highlights will include a panel of stakeholder partners who will discuss what information is valuable to them when deciding to partner on a project, as well as a question-and-answer session on starting these conversations in the community.en_US
