Fruit and Vegetable Production Data Research Report

By Drake Larsen

Iowa-specific production histories do not exist for most Iowa fruit and vegetable crops. Fruit and vegetable farmers have expressed they would like these numbers to compare their planting, harvest and yields with locally-relevant baselines. Beginning in 2013, 13 farmers collected production data to start the process of building robust baseline data.

The report for the first year can be found here and the full data set can be found here.

The project will continue in 2014.  Contact Sally Worley for more information or to participate:  sally (at)
