Water for agriculture is water put to good use — Guest Opinion

As a general agriculture organization, the Farm Bureau celebrates the rich diversity of ag products raised by farm and ranch families across our great state.

All of Oregon’s 225-plus ag commodities — from alfalfa to apples, hay to hazelnuts, cattle to carrot seed — are valuable and vital to an industry that consistently ranks as the state’s second-largest economic driver, valued at $5.7 billion; supports 326,000 jobs, or one in eight jobs; and generates billions of dollars to the state’s economy through international and domestic exports, according to the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
