North Willamette Research and Extension Center

The North Willamette Research and Extension Center (NWREC) is Oregon State University's only agriculture field research station located in the northwestern part of the state. 

We serve farmers in the seven county north valley area and focus our research and education on the region's most important crop systems: nurseries and greenhouses, fresh vegetables and specialty seed crops, berries and small fruit, Christmas trees, and small commercial farms.  In addition, NWREC is the location for the state's only IR-4 Pesticide Registration program working with agricultural crops throughout Oregon.
