Land Use

When and where to grow leafy greens are questions frequently asked, but Yuma area growers are trying to minimize food safety risks associated with fields that are close to urban development. Risks could be septic tanks that leak, or unintentional animal or pet contamination of fields and harvest equipment. The Arizona Leafy Green Marketing Agreement is a new collection of production guidelines that voluntarily creates effective steps towards minimizing risk. Please do your part, keep animals and pet out of produce fields.
