Project Title: Salmon-Safe Columbia

Project Title & Description
Leveraging Salmon-Safe�s peer-reviewed technical standards and market-proven outreach, assessment, certification, and public education tools, the project will build on a current base of more than 300 certified farms by introducing Salmon-Safe across multiple specialty and minor crops in the interior Columbia Basin. The goal of an additional 50 farms with Salmon-Safe certification will require that these mostly large-scale, diversified farms reduce or eliminate the use of pesticides that are harmful to fish and wildlife while also improving irrigation efficiency to ensure instream flows, reducing run off and wind erosion, protecting wildlife habitat and enhancing native biodiversity.
