Fruits and vegetables are Georgia's number-two cash crop, and the popularity of commodities like tomatoes, squash and fresh greens even extends further than commercial production.

Vegetables are an ever-important commodity, and UGA Extension provides both farmers and home gardeners a variety of information to help have the best output with the least amount of labor possible.

For information about home garden vegetables, see our Lawn & Garden Fruits and Vegetables section.
