About: Meet fellow farmers who are enhancing their crop rotation and finding higher profits by adding small grains and legumes to their rotation. Low commodity prices are driving many farmers to look for out-of-the-box solutions. Crops like oats, wheat, rye, peas, and dry beans can be an excellent addition to an existing production system. Learn strategies for producing food-grade small grains and legumes, including variety selection from heritage types to modern cultivars, and how this can help you access higher profits. Also, gain an understanding of the equipment needs for small grains and legume production as well as the agronomic requirements of buyers.
