Impact on Agriculture

Agriculture, it’s a part of Yuma’s backbone, a pillar in the community, our way of life. And for the past 125 years, Yuma has been the epicenter of winter produce: iceberg, romaine, spinach, baby leaf, Yuma grown and shipped throughout the US and the world. Food safety and public health? A spotless record, Yuma has never been linked to any incident. Yet, as the story of today is food safety and leafy greens, our challenge is clear. Every day, as we look for additional ways to meet the new Arizona’s leafy green production standards, we know that our tradition continues. Your help is appreciated!
