Abstract
  • 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.
