Abstract
  • This report presents estimates of land uses, concentrating on agricultural land in the Tualatin drainage basin. Acreage in different crop groups and agricultural water use and distribution in the watershed were estimated. The total amounts of nitrogen and phosphate applied to agricultural land and the average loading of nutrients per acre in each subbasin were calculated. Over 60 different crops and a variety of livestock are produced commercially in the Tualatin watershed. Agricultural statistics indicate between 90,000 and 110,000 harvested acres in Washington County. Production trends of livestock and some of the crops are discussed. Individual crops were classified into crop types following an Oregon State University Extension classification. The crop types were then divided into irrigated or non-irrigated, according to the dominant method of production within the group. The acreage of individual crop types was estimated for each subbasin.
