Fruit and Vegetable Production Data Collection

Published Mar 1, 2014

Thirteen farms participated in fruit and vegetable production recordkeeping. 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. Data collection will continue in 2014.
