Oregon Agriculture Chemicals & Fertilizer Association

Oregon Agriculture Chemicals & Fertilizer Association is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to promote the safe use of agricultural chemicals and fertilizer products and to advocate on behalf of those involved with the manufacture, sale, and application of these products.

Membership

Benefits

Benefits to being a member of Oregon Agriculture Chemicals & Fertilizer Association include legislative representation, access to industry specific training, and industry information. OACFA distributes electronic newsletters about industry issues, available resources, updates on recent legislation or changes to regulatory requirements. Each fall OACFA sponsors a series of seminars — Safety & Stewardship Seminars. The Seminars emphasize the safe, effective and legal application of pesticides, as well as environmental protection. Private growers, custom applicators, and other users of pesticide products, such as landscape personnel and pest control operators also benefit from this continuing education opportunity. Seminar attendees receive recertification credits to properly maintain their applicator licenses in Oregon and adjoining states. OACFA electronic newsletters provide frequent reminders about other continuing education programs and resources throughout the year.
