1. Introduction
In response to the oil embargoes of the 1970s, programs to develop alternative energy sources were begun in the U.S. Energy security still remains a concern, but other issues such as global climate change, air and water quality, and economic development have added new immediacy to the development of alternative energy systems. Among the alternatives is biomass energy. In addition to research on conversion technologies, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) established, in 1978, the Bioenergy Feedstock Development Program (BFDP) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The BFDP is developing new crops and cropping systems that can be used as dedicated bioenergy feedstocks. The program has screened numerous potential crop candidates to identify promising species and research frequently involves collaborative efforts with university and USDA researchers. Recent efforts are focusing on three cropsswitchgrass, hybrid poplar, and willow.

Oregon Small Farms Online was developed to provide small scale farmers with practical information about crop production, marketing and other topics of interest. Small farms are difficult to define. On one hand, there are farmers who wish to intensively manage their land to produce high quality agricultural products. These small business people have the potential for earning large profits. On the other hand, there are residents of rural areas who enjoy living in the country and who wish to have access to information that will help them manage their property. And, there are many people who fall somewhere in between these profiles; there is something for everyone at this site.

The following list consists of sites in Oregon with horticulture crop production information. As time goes by and more information becomes available on-line, we will create links from this page to those sites.
  • CIPS - Closed Insulated Production System. CIPS is a box enclosing the plants’ root systems. The plant’s shoot extends through a seal in the lid. In the root medium within the closed protective box, capillary water movement upward from the water reservoir is plant-driven. Fertilizer diffuses from the fertilizer reservoir within a protected diffusion zone (PDZ). There is no waste effluent. There is no recycling. Sufficient water and fertilizer for one or more years may be placed initially in the respective CIPS reservoirs. CIPS may be a single or multiple plant system. Developed by James L. Green, Professor, Extension Nursery and Greenhouse Production Specialist, Oregon State University.
  • Commercial Vegetable Production Guides - Very comprehensive guides to production of all the commercially grown vegetables in Oregon. Produced by Dr. N.S. Bill Mansour, Horticulture Department, Oregon State University.
  • The Integrated Farming Systems Page is a source of information on progressive agricultural practices research conducted in the Willamette Valley. The main research areas of the program include cover cropping, beneficial insectary plantings, and strip tillage.

Production Requirements
Broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower are known as cole crops. Several other vegetables belong to this group, including Brussels sprouts, Chinese cabbage, and kohlrabi, but these are considered minor vegetables. Cole crops are cool season vegetables that grow best at temperatures between 60 o and 68 o F. Properly hardened mature plants of cabbage can withstand short durations of temperatures as low as 25 o F, while broccoli and cauliflower plants tolerate light frosts. The upper limit for cole crop growth is about 80 o to 85 o F. All these crops lose quality when temperatures exceed 80 o F. Cabbage is the most heat tolerant, but prolonged high temperatures cause puffy heads with long cores and increased tipburn. High temperatures cause broccoli and cauliflower heads to become loose and branchy and may favor the development of bracts (leaf-like structures) in the heads. Broccoli buds turn yellow and flower rapidly in hot weather, while cauliflower buds develop a fuzzy, “ricy” appearance.
Expected Yield
Good yields under irrigation in Oklahoma and the approximate number of days from field setting of transplants to harvest are as follows:

    Fertilizer Use - Crop Production At least 16 essential plant nutrients are required for growth. An insufficient supply of any or more of these nutrients can have a detrimental effect on plant growth and, ultimately, crop yields. All but three of these nutrients (carbon, hydrogen and oxygen) are derived from the soil. Four nutrients - nitrogen, phosphorus and to a lessor degree, potassium and sulphur - are likely to be of concern for Manitoba crop production.
    SOIL TESTING Soil testing is the only way to determine the available nutrient status of a field and obtain specific fertilizer recommendations. Reliable soil test results and recommendations depend upon:
    • proper soil sampling;
    • proper soil analysis techniques; and
    • sound fertilizer recommendation guidelines.
    The following procedures should be followed to ensure representative samples are provided for laboratory analysis.
    • all fields should be sampled separately;

    In a unique public and industry research partnership, the Common Purpose Institute, University of Florida, energy companies, and others are working to study ways to grow and harvest fast growing trees (called energy crop or closed-loop biomass) as a renewable energy fuel source for electric utilities in the Southeastern U.S. By remembering the basic science of tree photosynthesis, a key aspect of this research effort can be easily understood. Since trees store carbon (called sequestration), growing and using energy crops reduces the level of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere which may be creating Global Warming on our planet. The science behind this Strategy to reduce greenhouse gas levels is accomplished in two ways: First, energy crops are "carbon cycle neutral" just like other forms of renewable energy such as wind or solar power. Second, growing energy crops creates a "carbon sink", which includes storing carbon underground through the tree's root system. Because of this creation of a "carbon sink" (a component which solar and wind energy do not have), we believe that biomass energy crops represent the most effective choice in renewable energy options to address Global Warming.

    CROP PRODUCTION SOIL QUALITY Crop Rotations Avoid Summerfallow ... Keep Natural Wetlands Successful crop production depends on a number of inter-related factors. Keep this in mind when making decisions on production inputs. Factors to be considered include:
    • seed bed type and preparation seed variety and quality seed treatment seeding methodology and timing fertilizer application pest management, including weeds, insects and diseases harvesting methods
    In general, expect best results when the proper balance of inputs is tailored to the particular soil and climatic conditions involved. For example, maximum returns from good-quality seed and fertilizer are reached only when integrated with other management practices such as effective pest control measures.
    For variety selection, refer to the current issue of Seed Manitoba
    Assess management practices and production costs carefully to select the optimum crop combination that will maximize profits. To assist producers in deciding which crops to grow, Manitoba Agriculture and Food has produced Guidelines for Estimating Crop Production Costs . These brochures are published annually and estimate the production costs for several different crops. They are available from your local agricultural representative.
    Alternating broadleaf and cereal crops is generally recommended; specific cases are discussed under individual crop sections. Further information on crop rotation can be obtained from Manitoba Agriculture's
