Characteristics of Firms Engaged in Fruit and Vegetable Trade
The primary objectives of this research are (1) to determine, in depth, the nature and characteristics of U.S. and Latin American firms engaged in fruit and vegetable trade and (2) to determine, in depth, barriers to trade encountered by these firms. This information should be useful to firms already trading internationally in fruits and vegetables and those looking for international opportunities. The information should provide important insights into the conduct of business operations, and inroads and obstacles to trading fruits and vegetables between Latin America and the United States. Policy makers should also be able to use this information to accommodate smoother trading relations among countries. Published on Mar 31, 2017.

Commercial Production of Vegetable Transplants
Producing greenhouse-grown containerized transplants is an increasingly popular way to establish vegetable crops. Compared to field-grown transplants, greenhouse transplants have several advantages. They can be produced earlier and more uniformly than field-grown plants. Their growth can be controlled more easily through fertility and water management and they can be held longer and harvested when needed. Published on Jan 31, 2017.

Consumer Demand for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables in the U.S. (1960-1993)
Price and expenditure elasticities at the retail level between 1960 and 1993 were estimated for 11 fresh fruits and 10 fresh vegetables by employing a composite demand system approach and using annual data. Most fresh fruits and vegetables were found to respond significantly to changes in their own prices but insignificantly
to changes in expenditures. The study partially incorporated the interdependent demand relationships between fresh fruits (vegetables) and all other commodities, yet effectively avoided the problems of insufficient degrees of freedom. Published on Mar 30, 2096.

Designing Research and Demonstration Tests for Farmers' Fields
As farmers and farm advisers, you make many management choices during a growing season. For example, you may have to decide which cultivar to plant, which herbicide to use, how frequently to apply a fungicide, and what rate of nematicide to use. Often the information needed to make the best decision is available to you, but when it is not available you can frequently compare the options by conducting your own small experiments. Your experiments can be just as valid as any university study if you follow a few important principles of experimental design. Published on Jan 31, 2017.

This publication is a comprehensive guide to growing vegetables organically, including location, planning, irrigation, soil preparation, composting, fertilizers, successive planting and crop rotation, mulching and insect control. Published on Apr 30, 2017.
Managing Fruit and Vegetable Waste
The production, harvest, sorting and packing of fruits and vegetables produces close to a billion pounds of produce annually. These processes also result in material that is rotten, has bad spots, or is removed from packing lines. Properly dealing with discarded products can reduce the potential for environmental pollution while also protecting the individual who is responsible for the discarded materials. Published on Jun 15, 2014.
Pollination of Vegetable Crops
Plants develop seeds through a process called pollination. Pollination is the transfer of pollen from the stamen (male flower part) to the pistil (female flower part). Published on Nov 30, 2014.
UGA Weed Control Programs for Broccoli, Cabbage, and Cauliflower 2016
When it comes to growing commercial broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower, crop rotation, tillage, and a sound herbicide program are all often critical components for long-term success. This circular focuses on developing sound herbicide programs for cole crops while minimizing crop injury for the following production systems: 1) transplanting into mulch, 2) transplanting into bare ground, and 3) seeding into bare ground. It is critical for growers to understand that their specific production practices may alter weed and crop responses; thus, growers must evaluate these programs on limited acres until gaining experience.

Weights and Processed Yields of Fruits and Vegetables
Marketing fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers markets, roadside markets, and pick-your-own farms is an important and growing method of marketing. However, many of the containers used are not practical for consumers. Published on Jun 15, 2014.
