This Assistant Professor of Practice - Extension Field Crops and Watershed Management position is a spokesperson for some sectors of Treasure Valley agriculture. It is essential that this faculty member have an in-depth understanding of the cropping systems sciences and appreciation of the area such that they can serve as a technical advisor for local industry groups and provide science and research-based guidance to other governmental agencies that are developing policies that would affect the natural resource industries of the county.

Applied research that addresses cropping system needs that result in scholarly outputs appropriate for this position is expected. What are considered to be “minor crops” on a national level (onions, alfalfa seed, dry beans, etc.) are the backbone of agriculture in Malheur County. Given this minor crop status, maintaining current and seeking new local pesticide registrations is critical to strengthening of agricultural industry success in the County. The faculty member must assist in doing needed research and paperwork to obtain local pesticide labels. This work is to be done in cooperation with other OSU and University of Idaho colleagues in the Treasure Valley.
