Agricultural producers applying for value-added producer grants can find resources to assist them through the Agricultural Marketing Resource Center at Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will host a series of meetings this fall for growers producing crops in high tunnels. Two meeting sites will be offered for each workshop.
With this spring’s wet soils and cool, cloudy weather, some people wonder where those ripe tomatoes and green beans at the farmers' market are coming from. The growers may be using high tunnels that allow them to plant earlier and have vegetables a few to several weeks sooner than field-grown crops.
