New SAN bulletin explores crop diversification


I have received the following notice of a new Sustainable Agriculture
Network (SAN) publication that may be of interest to you.  The website from
which to download it is listed below as well as an address from which to
order color copies.  I have reviewed the publication and have found it to
be relevant in many ways to our conditions, especially for small farms.

Rick Gibson
Sustainable Ag Coordinator


 >I wanted to make you aware of a new SAN publication that may be useful to
 >you or other extension educators in your state.
 >
 >"Diversify Crops to Boost Profits and Stewardship" highlights ways for
 >producers to explore new cropping options in response to today's tough
 >economic conditions. It is available in print or on the web, courtesy of
 >the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN).
 >
 >As farmers and ranchers contend with some of the lowest commodity prices
 >we've seen in years, it's an apt time to consider diversifying. The
 >12-page, color publication encompasses alternative cash crops, cover crops
 >and agroforestry -- and how producers have used these strategies to
 >increase profits. At the same time, the featured producers have improved
 >their stewardship of natural resources by reducing pest pressures,
 >introducing nitrogen-fixing crops and lessening erosion. A detailed list of
 >expert sources who can provide more information round out the publication.
 >
 >"Diversify Crops to Boost Profits and Stewardship," is available at
 >http://www.sare.org/san/diversify/  where you can download an Adobe Acrobat
 >file for printing. To receive color copies by mail, contact SAN at
 >aadeyemi@nal.usda.gov
 >
 >SAN is the national outreach arm of USDA's Sustainable Agriculture Research
 >and Education (SARE) program.
