The ten member board has spent the last two days in Prineville. 

 

They try to take their quarterly board meetings "on the road" to get public input.

 

Bruce Pokarney with the Oregon Department of Agriculture sheds light on what was discussed.

 

"Primarily, water is the issue around the state and here in central Oregon -- having enough water or enough irrigation.  And there's increased concern there may not be enough water to grow corps.  Some of the problems with endangered species, mitigation efforts that require less water for agriculture."

 

The Oregon Board of Agriculture has not met in Prineville for more than twenty years.
