Commercial fruit and vegetable growing guides

The Commercial Fruit and Vegetable Production Program works with growers to enhance profitability, add value and maintain food security through local production and marketing of fruit and vegetable crops in Minnesota.

We work with:

  • Commercial vegetable producers.
  • Commercial fruit producers.
  • The commercial processing industry.
  • New immigrant farmers.

In partnership with other organizations and commodity groups, we conduct research and communicate research-based information to growers throughout Minnesota.

We do this by developing and producing educational programs, field days, grower roundtables, print and web publications, newsletters and radio talks, and through one-on-one consultation.
