    Oregon that is, by far, the largest contiguous crop production region in the PNW and indeed in the western United States (Fig. 1). We spotlight dryland wheat farming in Adams County, Washington, and Sherman County, Oregon. Agricultural research stations have been in operation at Lind and Moro in. Dryland organic farming in Idaho, Washington, and Oregon has great potential for growth as well as improved economic and environmental sustainability. The long-term goal of this integrated research and extension project is to foster the development of economically viable and environmentally sustainable dryland organic grain and forage farming systems in the dryland production regions of the.

    An Economic Analysis of the Potential for Carbon Credits to Improve Profitability of Conservation Tillage Systems Across Washington State Chapter 24 in Climate Friendly Farming: Improving the Carbon Footprint of Agriculture in the Pacific Northwest. A large-scale field project on transitioning to organic grain (primarily wheat) production in the Palouse region (dryland, annual cropping) was started in Three years of transition and two years of wheat production have been monitored, with nine different cropping systems. Weed control and fertility have been big challenges.

    A. Wheat/fallow rotation is not sustainable. B. Alternate crops are needed to reduce wheat/fallow rotation. C. Traditional farming practices lead to over fertilization and applications of pesticides in some areas. D. Wheat in eastern Oregon matures under drought and heat stresses that reduce yield. The purpose of these projects is to: A. determine sustainable alternative cropping systems, B. Food and plants that are grown in a way that is healthy for consumers, communities, and the environment as a whole - that's the Department of Horticulture's commitment to Sustainable Food and Farming Systems. In Oregon, there are o farms producing crops on over 16 million acres. Horticultural fruits, nuts, berries, vegetables, and specialty crops are produced on over.

Wheat-fallow rotation is declining under rapidly rising production costs. The continued economic analysis of alternative, eastern Oregon wheat-production systems is critical in this region.

The range of choices is broadening due to agronomic research in crop rotations, chemical use and the changing farm policy environment.

Agriculture’s Impact Is Direct and Indirect Infarms in Eastern Oregon dished out roughly $ billion in total operating expenses: one-third of the total for Oregon overall.

Hired labor, or jobs in crop and animal production, accounted for just percent of farm expenses. Diseases continue to be important constraints in wheat and barley conservation cropping systems in the semiarid Pacific Northwest. Several diseases are more damaging in highthan low-residue seedbeds, and in crops planted during early autumn to reduce soil erosion during winter, especially unirrigated winter wheat in rotation with summer fallow in low rainfall zones (– mm).

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service, Oregon wheat production is expected to come in at million bushels, which is. A farming system is defined as a population of individual farm systems that have broadly similar resource bases, enterprise patterns, household livelihoods and constraints, and for which similar development strategies and interventions would be appropriate.

Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center (EOARC) is a cooperative research effort between Oregon State University and USDA-ARS (Agricultural Research Service) focusing on rangeland ecology and restoration of wildlands, environmentally compatible livestock systems, forage crops, and alternative livestock systems in the sagebrush-steppe of the Great Basin and inland coniferous.

Wheat ranks third among U.S. field crops in planted acreage, production, and gross farm receipts, behind corn and soybeans. In /17 U.S. farmers produced a total of billion bushels of winter, other spring, and durum wheat on million acres of cropland. Oregon agriculture’s farm gate value $ billion (), making it a top economic driver in the state.

The success of conservation agriculture depended on the flexibility and creativity of its practitioners as well as the quality extension and research services provided.

The fact that wheat farmers adopted a conservation agricultural system with the proper training and support attests that the system is sustainable.
