Agricultural Wildfire Webinars

May is wildfire preparedness month and OSU Extension in Sherman/Wasco Counties have several online opportunities for people to start thinking about the upcoming fire season as cheatgrass and other fuels are already quickly drying out.

These webinars will be recorded and available via YouTube and other platforms TBD.

  • Free online Agricultural Wildfire Course. The course is online HERE

A certificate is available upon course completion. The course covers how to develop emergency action plans, powerline and fireline safety, defensible space, fire control, and fire behavior. This course provides training that meets that of an annual Ag Wildfire refresher, which is a new Oregon OSHA requirement. Even if you do not have employees this course covers good material for living and working in rural eastern Oregon.

Sherman & Wasco Co. Crop Tours

The virtual canola crop tour and pest management recording is now posted on YouTube at, featuring canola being grown by Charlie Remington, David Brewer, and James Amery. Jacob Powell, OSU General Agricultural Extension Agent and Don Wysocki, OSU Extension Soil Scientist discuss planting and fertility methods for winter canola and pest management.

The Alfalfa Weevil webinar is still being processed and will be available in the coming days on the OSU Extension Service North-Central Oregon YouTube Channel at
