Natural Resources

Agricultural economists specializing in natural resources study problems related to land use, water conservation, energy, wildlife management, outdoor recreation and environmental regulations. Materials developed by agricultural economists at OSU are intended to be factual and objective. Links to these materials in the dropdown menu bar are provided for several long-term projects, including water conservation, energy and environmental policy. The public can also search for informational bulletins and fact sheets by clicking here.
