Historical Note

The Crop and Soil Science Department at Oregon State University offers academic programs for undergraduate and graduate students, conducts research, and disseminates basic and applied knowledge about field crops, cropping systems, soils, agricultural watersheds, and crop-related entomology. The Agronomy Department was established at Oregon Agricultural College in 1907.

Farming Today for Tomorrow is an undergraduate seminar series offered by the Crop and Soil Science, Horticulture, and Agricultural and Resource Economics departments on the environmental, economic, and social aspects of sustainability in agriculture.

Content Description

The Crop and Soil Science Department Videotapes consist predominantly of VHS videotape recordings of lectures presented in the sustainable agriculture seminar series, Farming Today for Tomorrow (CSS 199) and Issues of Sustainable Agriculture (CSS 499/599). The videotapes include recordings of the Winter 1999 and Winter 2006 seminars as well as an undated seminar series on Sustainable Cropping Systems.

The Winter 1999 series includes lectures by Chris Mundt, Toward Sustainability: The People are Leading, Will the Leaders Follow?; Paul Jepson, Do Pesticides Represent a Wasted Opportunity?; Carol Mallory-Smith, Of Silver Bullets and Resistant Weeds; Clint Shock, Environmental Degradation or Sustainable Use -- The Malheur County Groundwater Story; Ralph Berry, The Essence of IPM in Mint; Pat Hayes, What's the Price for Healthy Crops?
