A survey on the production and marketing practices of fruit, vegetable, specialty crop growers, and direct marketers in Virginia is underway. The survey is being administered in collaboration with the Virginia Small Fruit and Specialty Growers Association, with funding from the Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Economic Revitalization Commission. The survey is an integral part of a research effort to analyze the potential for small fruit and specialty market development as an alternative to tobacco production in Virginia.
The survey will provide valuable insight into the role of fruit, vegetable, specialty crops, and direct marketing in Virginia's economy. The survey can be completed online and is also available in hard copy. For more information, please contact Project Leader Denise Mainville at firstname.lastname@example.org or (540) 231-5774.
