Our mission is to sustain horticultural productions systems by partnering with growers and academics to provide research-based solutions. Our programs take four main themes that address major challenges to nursery and greenhouse production in Oregon: 1. Irrigation application; 2. Pest management; 3. Plant nutrition; and 4. climate adaptation. Our projects are designed to provide information that will support vibrant, verdant, urban and rural communities. We seek the balance between the low resource-use while maximizing plant health/quality. Often we grow plants the wrong way so you don’t have to.
