OACFA’s goals include providing educational programs to users of agricultural chemicals and fertilizers in order to assure their safe application and protection of the environment. These programs promote awareness and adherence to all appropriate state and federal regulations and procedures regarding the use of agricultural pesticides and fertilizers.
OACFA’s goals also include enhancing public awareness of the need for and the associated benefits of agricultural chemicals and fertilizers.
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.
