If this were a building you might see a sign posted that says “CONSTRUCTION ZONE” or “PARDON OUR DUST WHILE WE REMODEL” as this site is indeed a work in progress. As such you will see it grow in content and resource links over time. We are working hard learning how to better communicate using all of the new electronic and social media technologies available today. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook or Twitter to get the latest news and updates. As always the staff at OFS welcomes your comments and suggestions on how we can better serve our natural resource businesses and in turn provide benefit to all Oregonians. Our farm and forest partners are the true stewards of the environment — professionals who use all available tools judiciously and lawfully to provide safe, high quality and affordable food and fiber products for Oregon and beyond.
It is our goal to educate the our members, the public, and decision-makers on the importance of pesticides, fertilizer, and biotechnology, and how to safely use these products. It is not always easy for our members to tell their stories, but we want to show the public all of the great work they do to produce the food & fiber we need, and protect us from the pests that threaten our health and property.
We hope that you view our website as a source for solid, scientifically accurate information on crop protection products, soil nutrients, and biotechnology.
