WIC fruit and vegetable vouchers: Small farms face barriers in supplying produce

0

Your rating: None

By October 2009, all 50 states had implemented a revised WIC program with produce vouchers for millions of eligible families. USDA economists had projected the vouchers would raise net farm revenues by $76 million. In response to such a significant policy change and market opportunity, a UC Agriculture and Natural Resources Cooperative Extension team of researchers conducted a pilot project to test the ability of small farms to market produce locally to WIC-authorized stores known as A-50 vendors.

Soil suitability index identifies potential areas for groundwater banking on agricultural lands

0
No votes yet
Your rating: None

Groundwater pumping chronically exceeds natural recharge in many agricultural regions in California. A common method of recharging groundwater — when surface water is available — is to deliberately flood an open area, allowing water to percolate into an aquifer. However, open land suitable for this type of recharge is scarce. Flooding agricultural land during fallow or dormant periods has the potential to increase groundwater recharge substantially, but this approach has not been well studied.

Your rating: None

Although considered a vegetable by most people, tomatoes are actually the fruit of several plants of the genus Lycopersicon. Tomatoes are one of the leading produce items in the United States in terms of value and volume consumes. Preserving the quality of the fruit from vine to consumer is essential to successful marketing. This fact sheet describes harvesting, handling, storage, and packaging procedures that will help maintain fruit quality. It also discusses the economic aspects of marketing the crop.

No votes yet
Your rating: None

The information in this projected budget reflects expected income and costs based on typical production practices in the region. These values should be used as a guide, but individuals are encouraged to use their own values reflecting their specific land productive capabilities and farming system when looking at the potential costs and returns for their operations.
