Abstract

Being able to share data about actual production and sales is critical to the success of producers hoping to purchase crop insurance or obtain a loan. This project helped a group of small producers figure out recordkeeping within their operations as a start to creating a baseline for Iowa fruit and vegetable production.

Key Question

How can actual Iowa fruit and vegetable production data be collected?

Findings

Practical Farmers of Iowa trained a group of producers on how best to collect production data from 13 Iowa farms.
