Growing Teff

Asked November 9, 2014, 4:26 PM EST

Could you tell me how I can get in touch with teff growers in Oregon? I live in Portland and would like to visit a teff farm in the next week or two. We have a farm in Ethiopia and are trying to grow Teff on a large scale. I was told there are no harvesting machines which limits growing teff on a large scale. Is this true?

Hello,
I don't know anyone growing it in my area, but I think some growers in Eastern Oregon (i.e. Ontario area) and the Klamath Basin do. I found a 2006 teff project report online. It is posted as a Word document, so I don't seem to be able to send you the link. Richard J. Roseberg and Brian A. Charlton were two of the authors. I'd recommend getting in touch with them. They are based at the OSU Klamath Basin R&E Center: http://oregonstate.edu/dept/kbrec/contact-faculty-staff.

All the best.
