I am a 4th genertation farmer Northeast of Salem. We do not practice field burning, we are orchardist. It is my understanding that that proposed bills would eliminate all agriclutural burning. We burn trees when we renew orchards, we also burn diseased trees to eliminate pathogens.
The burning of the Willamette Valley prairie grasses was practice for millenia by Native Indians. The burning practices used by todays farmers are regulated and safe.
