Farm Diversification Webinar

Farm Diversification - Ideas on alternative crops - 

Farm diversification opens opportunity and increases potential profitability!  Adding specialty fruit and vegetable crops to your farm can increase profit margins in several ways. Like diversifying in the stock market, engaging in more than one enterprise and adding value to what you already grow will spread profit risk, not to mention “growing” interest in locally produced foods. This webinar will introduce participants to some new potential specialty crops, discuss new federal regulations to be aware of and regional research that has been done with specialty crops over the past few years.
