Early spring is the time to plant strawberries.
Proper watering and yearly renovation can help stem strawberry gray mold, also known as Botrytis fruit rot.
It’s strawberry season and even we have caught strawberry fever! The Mid-Valley Small Farms team is excited to announce that they are conducting new research on strawberry production. This Research and Extension program, supported by the Oregon Strawberry Commission, will focus on best practices for organic and conventional, day-neutral strawberries for fresh market.
The largest agricultural commodity in Oregon is grass. We grow grass for lawns, turf, pastures, hay, straw, and seed for home use and export. Forages (grasses and legumes) are an important source of livestock feed, and because our area has a high production capacity, we have a competitive advantage over other parts of the world that depend heavily on imported hay and grains to raise livestock. Our forage is a renewable resource – but only if we manage it correctly.
