Questions about who to call or where to go when it comes to Oregon agriculture are likely answered with the help of a popular, newly revised handy guide. The Oregon Department of Agriculture announces the availability of this year's edition of the Oregon Agricultural Resources Directory, an updated and expanded handbook that contains comprehensive contact information for numerous agricultural organizations and agencies.
The 143-page directory is a convenient, compact publication that includes organization names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and contact persons for a variety of entities. The directory includes information for the Oregon Department of Agriculture, other selected government agencies, Oregon Commodity Commissions, statewide farm bureaus, farmers' markets, soil and water conservation districts, Oregon State University agricultural resources, and various producer groups.
All information in the Oregon Agricultural Resources Directory was updated as of October, 2002. Copies of the pocket-sized resource guide can be purchased at a cost of $5 each by mail order from the Oregon Department of Agriculture, 635 Capitol Street NE, Salem, OR 97301-2532. Payment by check or money order must accompany all handbook orders.
