The OPARR Board voted at their September 23 board meeting to change the name of the organization to, “Ohio PLANT" with the tagline "The Coalition of Pesticide, Landscape, Agriculture, Nursery, and Turf Professionals”. The idea for a name change has been discussed over the last few years to reflect a growing membership of partners representing nurseries, landscape and lawn care, and golf courses. It was not an easy task to agree on a name that stayed true to OPARR’s original and continued core mission to represent pesticide and fertilizer applicators while respecting the new industry associations that joined over the last couple of years.
After much debate, the board believes the new name will reflect the growth of the organization while continuing its original mission. A larger voice carries more weight at the statehouse and Ohio PLANT will remain your advocate.
A new logo and website will be forthcoming.
