As demand grows for locally grown agricultural products, Louisiana fruit and vegetable growers are exploring production and marketing options for expanding their operations.
The North Louisiana Spring Field Tour, sponsored by the Louisiana Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association and the LSU AgCenter, was held May 3. The tour included stops at the Rayville High School hydroponic greenhouses, Curry Farms agritourism attractions in Start and Robertson Produce Inc. wholesale distribution in Monroe.
Another tour set for May 16 in south Louisiana will highlight different types of farming operations and practices, including strawberries and mixed vegetables, high-tunnel vegetable production and sustainable agricultural practices.
