The 2019 State of the Vegetable Industry Survey is Now Open!
American Vegetable Grower® needs your help to assess how the vegetable industry is doing this year.
Each year, we check on everything from production to labor through our State of the Vegetable Industry Survey. our information guides our team. It helps us prioritize the issues that are most important to you. With the information you share, we can track down experts, seek solutions, and deliver tools to help you do what you do best. And we’ll share the results with you in our January edition of American Vegetable Grower magazine.
Specific information you share will be held in confidence, but will give us a window into how the industry as a whole is faring.
