- A strong concern has been expressed with the siting of
container nurseries on high quality farmland in the Willamette
Valley. There have been claims that the nurseries don't use
the on site soil and potentially remove the soil on which they
locate permanently from crop production. This study has gathered
and presents information that will help evaluate this concern.
Oregon's Planning Goal 3 and other state policies and
statutes are examined with regard to container growing. A
spatial analysis of container nursery sites within the Willamette
Valley with relation to each other, population centers, high
quality farm soil, zoning, and surrounding land use is discussed.
The results and analysis of a survey of container growers in
the Willamette Valley concerning their siting needs and other
aspects of their business are also presented. The findings
of the study were that the container industry is not having
a negative effect on the availability of high quality soil and
that the needs of the industry are such that locating on high
quality soil is sometimes necessary.
