Introduction to Crop Production

There are many factors to consider when deciding what crops to grow. What can you sell? Where do you want to sell? What type of equipment do you own? How much landbase do you have? Market garden operations are best suited to smaller landbases with limited machinery available, as much of the work is done by hand.  Cash cropping with field crops is generally done on larger acreages and most of the work is done by machine.

This module will give you an overview of the various crops you may wish to grow and help you narrow down the choices to what works best for your farm and your location.
