College of Agricultural Sciences
The College is well known for its collaborations among state and federal agencies, and the College of Agricultural Sciences encourages low boundaries between disciplines and institutions. Our researchers and Extension faculty work closely with agency partners in EPA, USDA ARS, USGS, US Forest Service, US Navy, and many more. Regional industries and commodity groups are important partners, too. Oregon’s remarkable agricultural diversity—with more than 220 commodities here—means that many commodity groups depend on OSU research and development to improve their varieties and expand their markets. Our plant breeding programs are among the most active, and most diverse, in the nation.
