Agriculture and our food systems intertwine with nearly every major global concern, from climate change to international trade to human health. This intersection can be seen in a unique way in Oregon. The fishing sector is vital to the Oregon coast’s survival. Portland has become a gourmet haven because to urban agriculture, breweries, and eateries. The vast spaces east of the Cascades are dominated by beef cattle and dryland farming. More than 170 crops are grown in the fertile Willamette Valley, which is home to Oregon State University’s main campus, ranging from hops to hemp to wine grapes In Oregon, more than 250 items are cultivated and processed.
Only California generates more things than the rest of the country. Agricultural products from Oregon account for over 80% of the state’s exports, with about half of those going to other nations. Oregon State University researchers have helped define Oregon food and agriculture for more than 150 years, breeding the hop variety that launched the craft beer movement, saving the hazelnut industry by developing blight-resistant varieties, and, most recently, constructing the country’s largest hemp research center. You’re invited to meet these scholars and their partners to learn about the influence of food and agriculture on Oregon, the United States, and the rest of the globe. The program is based on a popular marine science media fellowship held by Oregon State University in recent years.
