OSU Seed Testing for Cover Crops
OSU will test seed for germination for use in cover crops. Pre-payment is not necessary at the time of shipment and producers will be provided an invoice after testing.

They would need 50-75 grams of seed for each germination test and include the crop year so dormancy can be accounted for. The cost for cereal crop germination is $41.00.

For more information, please contact Cindy Middlebrooks, Administrative Program Assistance, OSU Seed Lab. Email her at: seedlab@oregonstate.edu.

2019 Annual Tree and Shrub Sale
The 2019 Tree and Shrub Sale begins this month.
The new list for 2019 came out in the Sept/Oct issue of the GROUNDWORK.

Trees and shrubs are specifically chosen for the arid climate of Wasco County and surrounding areas in the Columbia Gorge. Native and naturalized, most are particularly suited for riparian plantings. Shrubs are mostly fruit bearing for wildlife plantings. Plants are bareroot, however, Ponderosa Pine and Douglas fir can be plugs (though we won't don't often know until we complete our nursery order) and Willows and Cottonwoods are cuttings.

Payment is required at the time of order. The deadline to reserve your order is January 24, 2019. We place our nursery orders based upon customer orders.

This year, there will be no pre-orders after the January 24, 2019 deadline. We plan on holding a two day sale around mid-March, after the pre-orders have been completed. We will have more information later as we work out the details.

Links to information about each plant on our list can be found under the Resource tab marked "Annual Tree Sale" A link to the 2019 list is below.
