Dry Farming Collaborative
Initiated in the spring of 2016, we are a group of growers, extension educators, plant breeders, and agricultural professionals partnering to increase knowledge and awareness of dry farming management practices with a hands-on participatory approach. So far there are about 20 sites throughout Western Oregon that are hosting dry farming trials including three OSU sites (NWREC, SOREC, and OCCUH).
2017 Varieties of Interest - ranked based on a survey sent out to the Dry Farming Collaborative in Feb. 2017 in preparation for seed ordering.
First winter Meeting was held on December 6, 2016 at the Mary's River Grange.
