It is time for fresh cabbage in Georgia!
Georgia has a big vegetable portfolio including everything from broccoli to zucchini and cabbage.
Producers are hard at work right now harvesting this year’s cabbage crop. The Farm Monitor’s John Holcomb takes us to Demott Produce in the Peach State.
Lettuce growers: there could be changes coming to the makeup of the leafy greens or how it can be processed. Researchers at the University of Georgia are mapping out the microbiome of the vegetable to see if they can figure out what interactions cause e-coli during processing and which bacteria can stop it. This could eventually lead to changes in production.
