The Dirt on Pendleton

We are very happy to announce our field days will be in person this year!

Tuesday, June 14th we invite you to join us at the Pendleton Station for the OSU/ARS Ag Research Round-Up. We have a new format which we are very excited about this year. We’ve narrowed down the field presentations to just those most impactful when seen in person (variety trials, CoAXium wheat, breeding trials, etc.). The Ag Research Round-Up will focus primarily on face to face discussions between our scientists and attendees this year.

Wednesday, June 15th we will hold our traditional Sherman Station Field Day, with a couple of tweaks to try to make it the best use of your time.

Coffee, donuts, drinks and lunch will be provided at both events, thanks to our incredible sponsors.

Please see our website: https://agsci.oregonstate.edu/cbarc/outreach/2022-field-day for more details and to register to attend either or both events.

Additionally, we will be providing videos of research results and projects as we have the past two years. The first of this year’s videos was produced by Dr. Kate Reardon, but as you will see in the video below, was in collaboration with many additional individuals at the station. Please take a moment to view the first of our 2022 Video Collection, “The Dirt on Pendleton”.

Paulina and Rachael are working to see how quickly water infiltrates a research field's soil (crop residue). The two of them also state "our pink timer is cool, and science should have more fashionable instruments!"

03/12/2022

Rachael Plunkett spent some time out in the field today, taking surface core samples from which we can measure the soil water potential in each individual sample. Water potential tells us how much available water there is for plants/crops.

The College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) is seeking a Director for the Hermiston Agricultural Research and Extension Center (HAREC), located in Hermiston, Oregon. HAREC is the premier irrigated agricultural experiment station of Oregon State University (OSU), Oregon’s Land Grant University. The HAREC serves nearly 500,000 acres of irrigated agriculture in Oregon and Washington's Columbia Basin, and is one of the largest experiment stations within CAS. The center concentrates on discovery and implementation of agricultural and horticultural opportunities and provides solutions to production restraints. Research at HAREC emphasizes identification of new crops and/or production practices; plant breeding and varietal evaluation, including nutritional contents; integrated pest management of insects and insect transmitted diseases; pollinator health; plant disease control; and environmental issues. In addition, there is an emphasis on stream ecology to investigate riparian conditions and how they relate to salmon fisheries.
This is a full-time (1.0 FTE), 12-month, Director position. The Director provides overall leadership and administration of HAREC, including fiscal and personnel oversight. The incumbent ensures high quality research and Extension programs at HAREC, fosters research and outreach efforts of the staff, establishes priorities and long-range plans, works with external advisory committees, and participates in community and industry meetings. The Director must demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and will promote collaboration among on- and off-campus faculty, other departments, branch stations and industry in the irrigated agriculture sector and related natural resource fields.
Hermiston is one of the fastest growing cities in eastern Oregon and is in close proximity to numerous recreational and outdoor opportunities associated with the Columbia River, the Blue Mountains, and native grasslands. The successful candidate will join a diverse team of staff and researchers seeking to advance scientific knowledge in agriculture and natural resources, and support and educate our diverse local clientele and community in the areas of irrigated agriculture, plant breeding, natural resources, and human health.
