Fruit and Vegetable Production Data Collection 2013-2015

Published May 10, 2016

In a Nutshell

Fifteen farms participated in fruit and vegetable production recordkeeping to date. The purpose of the project was to create Iowa-specific production histories for: producers to have baseline comparisons, the advancement of crop insurance options, and to provide information about typical Iowa production for lenders. Actual yields exceeded FSA-NAP yield estimates for most crop categories. Appendices A and B provide further production information for asparagus and kale.
