Organic Vegetable Production Manual

Author: Milton E McGiffen, Jr.

The Organic Vegetable Production Manual provides detailed information for growers on how to farm vegetables organically, addressing the essential topics for success in this highly competitive marketplace.

This book is a valuable resource for established organic growers, and a must-read for growers considering organic practices.

Chapters cover a range of topics for the organic vegetable farmer:

  • Business and marketing plans
  • Economic performance
  • Soil fertility management
  • Managing diseases
  • Weed management
  • Postharvest handling
  • Organic certification and registration in California

New for 2011, this publication includes substantially revised information from a seven-part series of shorter publications from 2000. The revisions address changing needs of organic growers and access to new information.

This book was written by a team of UC specialists and farm advisors who work closely with growers throughout California's diverse agricultural regions.

This 86-page manual is illustrated with 35 color photographs and 21 tables, and has a comprehensive index. Also included in the text is a case study of leaf lettuce production along California’s Central Coast, as an example for estimating costs and returns.
