Sustainable Production & Marketing of Ethnic Crops for Ethnic Markets

For 300 years, immigration to the United States was dominated by European ethnicities. Over the past 40 years, the majority of immigrants are now from tropical and sub-tropical regions. This workshop will focus on crop production and marketing of specific crops popular among these newer and still growing immigrants.

Frank Mangan: Professor of Agriculture with focus on sustainable vegetable production and of traditional and ethnic crops.
Heriberto Godoy Hernandez: UMass graduate student working in sustainable vegetable production in greenhouse and ethnic crops.
