Welcome to OFS!
What: Our mission here at Oregonians for Food and Shelter is to provide the public with education regarding the safe usage and importance of pesticides, fertilizers and biotechnology. While it may not be easy for our members to express their stories publicly, we want to exhibit the extraordinary work these individuals put in day in and day out to produce the food and fiber we need, as well as protect us from the pests that threaten our health and property.
Who: True stewards to the environment, our farm and forest partners are professionals seeking to provide safe, high quality and affordable food and fiber products for Oregon and beyond by using all available tools judiciously and lawfully. Not only do they strive for the safety of the public, they seek to create a safe and sustainable environment.
Why?: In order to cultivate a prosperous and sustainable environment, human intervention is necessary through pesticides, and fertilizers. There are pests out there that will destroy what nature has given us and we as a society cannot allow that to happen.
As always the staff at OFS welcomes your comments and suggestions on how we can better serve our natural resource businesses and in turn provide benefit to all Oregonians.
We hope that you view our website as a source for solid, scientifically accurate information on crop protection products, soil nutrients, and biotechnology.
