On Wednesday, January 16, Neil Evans will present “Farmers’ Rights When Regulators Knock” at the North Willamette Horticulture Society Meeting hosted by Oregon State University’s (OSU) North Willamette Research and Extension Center (NWREC). Following a panel discussion with Calcagno Farms owner Howard Calcagno, Evans will speak to Oregon farmers about representing Calcagno Farms in produce contamination investigations by the Food and Drug Administration, and Oregon Department of Agriculture. His presentation will also address the Food Safety Modernization Action, which is due to be fully implemented in 2019, and how farmers can prepare to respond to federal and state investigations.
NWREC is OSU’s only agriculture field research station located in the northwestern part of the state and serves farmers in the seven county north valley area. NWREC is the state’s only IR-4 Pesticide Registration program working with agricultural crops throughout Oregon.
 Howard Calcagno has given full permission for Evans to discuss the details of the Calcagno Farms investigation.
