Report Shares Lessons Learned from Kansas Specialty Crop Growers

The Kansas Rural Center has published a 42-page report, Lessons Learned from Specialty Crop Growers Across Kansas, that’s available free online in PDF. The report is a compilation of five previously published profiles of successful Kansas specialty crop growers, plus the proceedings of a one-day facilitated discussion in February 2018 between those experienced growers and five beginning specialty crop growers. The guide is the third in a series of specialty crop guides prepared by the Kansas Rural Center in collaboration with Kansas State University Extension. Crops covered include vegetables, fruits, and direct-market grassfed beef, lamb, and chicken.
