Washington State University Extension has released Advances in Dryland Farming in the Inland Pacific Northwest, a publication that summarizes the most up-to-date scientific knowledge about the region's dryland systems. The book includes the work of more than 40 co-authors from WSU, University of Idaho, Oregon State University, and USDA Agricultural Research Service. It has chapters on conservation tillage systems, residue management, crop intensification and diversification, soil fertility management, soil amendments, precision agriculture, weeds, diseases, and insects, and policy. The book is available online in its entirety in PDF, or by individual chapter. The production of this book was made possible with the support of the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture through the REACCH project to enhance the sustainability of Pacific Northwest cereal systems and contribute to climate change mitigation.
