The USDA-Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and Oregon State University at Pendleton OR, conduct research on dryland crop production and soil and water conservation. Together, our team is developing sustainable farming practices that halt erosion, protect air quality, conserve soil water, reduce farm inputs and enhance soil quality and soil health.
The mission of the Columbia Plateau Conservation Research Center is to conduct innovative research to provide the public with sound scientific knowledge, recommendations, and tools supporting profitable dryland crop production that is resilient to climate variability and promotes soil health and environmental quality in the low to intermediate precipitation zones of inland Pacific Northwest and related agricultural land resource areas.
