Ethnic Vegetable Production

Erroll Mattox from UMES – Maryland Cooperative Extension will be talking about ethnic vegetable production at the MOFFA Winter Meeting on February 15, 2014.

Demographics in America are changing and we can grow food for the world/ethnic market here in Maryland. Erroll will share some thoughts on what we can grow for the South Asian consumer and  insights on marketing.
