New Iowa State lab looks at sustainable vegetable production

Ajay Nair

Increased demand for locally grown fruit and vegetables has attracted many new growers in Iowa. Ajay Nair, vegetable production specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach, is sharing information to help them adopt sustainable production practices and improve their bottom line and the environment.

“Knowing what will work best in Iowa, given our climate, soils and growing season, is critical. This research can create opportunities for growers to lower their input costs, improve crop and soil health, and influence cropping system efficiency,” Nair said.
