OHIO'S AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY BENEFITS FROM CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- During Ohio's AG Day celebration, Gov. George V. Voinovich discussed the capital improvements budget for Ohio's agricultural industry. "Because much of Ohio's population is concentrated in big cities, urban residents may not realize the importance of agriculture to our state," said Voinovich. "However, agriculture and agri-business contributes billions of dollars to our state's economy, so it's important that we help ensure a productive future for this industry," continued Voinovich.
 The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) received $16.39 million in capital improvement funds to renovate outdated lab facilities at the Reynoldsburg laboratory complex. Services performed at the lab help to ensure Ohioans receive what the label says when it comes to meat, milk, food, fertilizer, feed and seed. "I'm proud of the work that has been done by our employees in spite of the antiquated work environment," said ODA Director Fred L. Dailey. "The improvements will allow us to modernize our facilities to better serve farmers and consumers," said Dailey.
 Ohio State University's College of Agriculture received its largest capital improvements outlay since 1983 with $10 million allocated for improvements to the OSU campus facilities and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) and The Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI), both in Wooster, Ohio.
