    Research conducted in the plant pathology program focuses on the ecology, epidemiology, and management of pathogens causing disease of high value irrigated crops grown in the Columbia Basin of Oregon. Current, research projects develop knowledge about: Potato tuber necrotic virus and disease management (i.e. disease cause by potato virus Y. But considering that irrigation consumes as much as 70 percent of the world’s freshwater withdrawals, dryland farming in western Oregon may be a sustainable alternative. an agronomist at OSU’s Columbia Basin Agricultural Research Center in Pendleton, says .

    Crops I have worked with include potato, sweet potato, asparagus, cotton, corn, soybean, alfalfa, wheat, strawberry, and vegetables. My major responsibilities as an Extension Entomologist at OSU are to attend emergencies in irrigated crops in Eastern Oregon. The Columbia Basin Project (or CBP) in Central Washington, United States, is the irrigation network that the Grand Coulee Dam makes possible. It is the largest water reclamation project in the United States, supplying irrigation water to over , acres (2, km 2) of the 1,, acres (4, km 2) large project area, all of which was originally intended to be supplied and is still.

    Washington Irrigation. Washington's designation as "The Evergreen State" really only applies to half of the state. The Cascade Mountain Range effectively drains most of the moisture from the atmosphere onto the west side of the mountains leaving the east side with plenty of sunshine, but very little rainfall. Cover crops in the Columbia Basin are planted for a variety of reasons, including prevention of wind erosion, sequestration of nutrients, suppression of soil-borne pathogens, and improvement of soil organic matter. Extensive research has been conducted on the use of mustards as a fall-.

The project provides irrigation water to 2, farms. Apples, wheat and corn are the largest-volume crops. There also are large herds of dairy cows and beef cattle. Annually, the cash value of farm production in the Columbia Basin Project is about $ million.

Contact Info. The Columbia Basin is a major area for the production of potatoes, sweetcorn, melons and onions and a number of other temperate vegetables, herbs and vegetable seeds.

Crops are produced for both fresh market and processing. The Columbia Basin vegetable region includes parts of Gillam, Morrow, and Umatilla counties as indicated on the map at right.

The Columbia Basin Project is located in the central part of Washington State in the counties of Adams, Douglas, Franklin, Stevens, Okanogan, Grant, Lincoln, and Walla Walla.

This disease has been particularly. In Oregon, Kentucky bluegrass seed is produced in three main irrigated crop areas: the Grande Ronde Valley near La Grande in northeastern Oregon, the Madras and Culver areas in central Oregon, and the Lower Umatilla Basin near Hermiston in the southern portion of the Columbia Basin.

Characteristics of these three areas are shown in Table 1.Benjamin Brink, The Oregonian Dryland winter wheat, grown without irrigation, has been a dependable crop in the Columbia River basin since Apr 30,  · This project will improve the sustainability of irrigated crop production while reducing potentially negative impacts on the environment.
