The Olentangy River originates in Morrow County (northeastern corner of the Scioto River
Basin), Ohio, and flows south for 150 km to Columbus in central Ohio where it empties into the Scioto River
Partly based on this rich organic accumulation and potential for valuable agricultural use, as well as its reputation as a source of malaria, the marsh was drained in the mid-1850s and the Scioto River
was channelized to create the productive agricultural land it remains today.
The purpose of this paper is to report the findings from a study designed to assess how socioeconomic and farm structure factors influence use of several agricultural practices by farmers operating commercial farms in the Scioto River
watershed in Ohio.
In addition, by 1773, when Marmaduke would have been only ten-years old, a town located on a tributary (Deer Creek) of the Scioto River
