We will tour the farm with farmer, Geo Honigford and consultant Mimi Arnstein, taking a look at how these crops are grown. We’ll go over fact sheets and have a discussion sharing ideas on how to optimize production of these crops efficiently and what factors have the biggest impact on your return on investment. We will also discuss step by step methods for determining cost of production for any crop, allowing growers to focus on their most lucrative crops and make improvements to increase profitability.
