Specialty crops can build profitability for your farm in down seasons. But, it can
also create important habitat diversity. Crops cultivated for food, medicines, or
beauty can be a specialty crop.
Choose a crop based on your interests, the market and your site. Your local
county extension or USDA Rural Information agent can help you decide. They can
also guide you on possible grants, subsidies and reimbursements.
For some, a specialty crop will be a hobby. Others want to create profitable crop yields quickly, within the first three to five years. For those, Forrest Keeling’s RPM container-grown materials are the best value. RPM-produced trees and shrubs fruit and grow up to 50% faster. They also show higher establishment success. For certain fruit and nut species, a grafted tree will be best. Grafted specimens usually exhibit earlier production, more uniform quality and consistent yields.
