The Economic Impact of Fruit and Vegetable Production in Southwest Iowa Considering Local and Nearby Metropolitan Markets
Rural producers are interested in developing income enhancing opportunities. Increased, in-season production of fresh fruits and vegetables fro local or regional consumption is one farm-level opportunity. This study looks at a 12 county region and evaluates the production-driven income gains that could be anticipated from increased local fruit and vegetable production of local consumption, as well as increased production to satisfy the demand of two major metropolitan markets that exist outside of the primary production region.
