Oregon Legislature approves $7.5 million for Oregon Manufacturing and Innovation Center (Portland Tribune)

Alarm sounded over white top infestation in Malheur County (Capital Press)

White top, an invasive weed, has exploded to alarming levels in Malheur County this year. “This is the worst it’s ever been,” said Oregon State University Cropping Systems Extension Agent Bill Buhrig, who has lived in the county for 40 years. “It’s all over the place.”

Your ability to ‘smell’ the tastes of food can lessen with age (KTVN)

This suggests that there’s little difference in how people experience the same taste. But, there could be significant variation in how intensely they experience an aroma, according to researchers Tyler Flaherty and Juyun Lim, of Oregon State University.

Why grow soybeans? (Ag Info)

The Oregon State University extension service rhetorically asks a question in a recent publication. It asks, why consider growing soybeans? we know that in the Northwest, soybeans are relatively new crop struggling to find local processors and a profitable market. I think we may have found an answer. The population of hogs and chickens in the United States is getting larger, and so is their need for high-quality feed. According to research, the number of hogs produced in the U.S. has increased nearly 25 percent since 2003, while broiler production has increased by more than 15 percent. More hogs and chickens mean more opportunities for soybean farmers, but only if they produce soybeans that yield high-quality soybean meal.

Bend poet creates feast for the senses (Bend Bulletin)

It’s strawberry season: We go beyond Hoods with an Oregon-grown taste test (Oregonian)

To bridge that gap, Oregon State University created the Shuksan, a sturdier berry with the same punch as a Hood. It joins a long line of strawberries that grow in Oregon each spring and summer.

And the Walrus said “Coo coo cachoo” (News Lincoln County)

A new mural has emerged at Hatfield Marine Science Center, featuring a life-size, three-dimensional walrus head and other marine mammals at Oregon Sea Grant’s Visitor Center in Newport.

Merkley honors health 4-H efforts (Argus Observer)

Merkley also awarded the program and Oregon State University Extension, which sponsors the program, a Community Commendation.

Art About Ag: Agriculture of the American Landscape exhibit (Lebanon Express)

This year’s exhibition, sponsored by OSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences, will present works of art by visual artists from throughout the Northwest, who were invited by the college based on nominations from a committee of art specialists. The committee sought artist nominees who consider landscapes of working agricultural fields and pasturelands as the primary content in their art, including food systems and plant-based fiber production and expressed in the choice of subject matter, in the use of materials, or both.
