Abstract
  • Oregon growers produced 53.8 million bushels of wheat in 1989 with an estimated farm value of $228.8 million, making wheat among the highest valued farm crops in the state. Wheat production is a particularly important agricultural enterprise in Oregon's Columbia Plateau. In 1989, five counties in the Columbia Plateau accounted for $134.8 million of wheat sales from 650,000 harvested acres, or about 59% of the state's total production. The purpose of this study is to present estimated costs of producing and marketing wheat in the Columbia Plateau counties of Gilliam, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla, and Wasco. Cost information for a summer fallow-winter wheat rotation is detailed for a mold-board plow tillage system. Growers, agricultural lenders, and others concerned with the wheat industry will find this information useful in estimating the physical and financial requirements of producing dryland wheat in the area.
