Re: Cross roads!

You mean specialty beans/ veg? I am considering growing Ming beans on loamy sands that are considered wheat/hay ground. Apparently they are well adapted to the desert. Just waiting for the regulatory approval here.

Ip soy doesn't have enough premium right now. All anyone grows for specialty around me is Chinese Veg and potatoes/ dry bean.

How bout you?

Re: Cross roads!

    Specialty crops, we are looking at thousands of acre going in to hazel nuts annualy,grapes,berrys,and certified seeds.All commanding higher pricing because grains are higher and resulting in a land shortage.What are we going to have left for land to raise forage on for the live stock sector?

Re: Cross roads!

If the prices were attractive there is a lot of ground through the Appilacian foothills that could be used for some specialty crops that can grow on hills and small fields that are not big enough for traditional grain equipment. Most of this ground has pretty poor nutrients and a lot of wildlife pressure.
