A meeting is being planned for farmers in the East Palestine area with the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

The meeting will take place Thursday, March 9 at 2 p.m. at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church Education Building (251 S Broadway Ave in Salem). 

The agency said the meeting would be a roundtable discussion with farmers about the upcoming planting season.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture says it currently has no reason to believe crops planted in soil in the East Palestine area are not safe for consumption.
