  • (2021) Designing cover and alternative crops for dryland cropping systems in Eastern Oregon Oregon wheat growers typically use long fallow periods to conserve soil moisture. However, issues with current production practices include: negative impacts on soil health, organic matter, pH, and nutrients. Soilborne diseases are also a concern. This project Introduction to Resilient Dryland Farming Appropriation will generate information to assist growers in designing wheat-alternate cropping systems that will improve soil health without decreasing wheat yields.

    The Resilient Dryland Farming Appropriation (RDFA), a product of a farmer-led initiative, supports research to develop resilient cropping systems that increase drought, heat, and disease tolerance; improve grain yield and quality; and enhance economic and environmental outcomes of dryland crop production systems.
  • (2021) OSU wheat and barley field trial helps growers make annual variety choices Results from the variety trial have been received extremely well by growers and stakeholders.
