main campus of a major research university situated within a metropolitan area of over 1 million people. Field research space at Columbus is located on nearby Waterman Agriculture and Natural Resources Laboratory.
The Department of Plant Pathology shares the 85-acre Snyder Farm field research facility on the Wooster campus with the Department of Entomology, and Plant Pathology has taken nearly all responsibility for managing this unit for over a decade. The field, vegetable and fruit pathology research programs at Wooster make extensive use of plot land on the Snyder Farm, as do several USDA-ARS research programs. Some of our faculty in Columbus also use plots at this facility. There are no fees for the use of the field facilities at this time. Additional research with organic agricultural practices is carried out in plots at the nearby Organic Farm maintained by the OFFER (Organic Food and Farm Educational Research) program of OARDC.
