Cover Image

By Roberta Cook and Linda Calvin

Economic Research Report No. (ERR2) 86 pp, April 2005

However, relatively little is known about this new industry, in part because of the lack of reliable production, trade, and price data. Both analysts and industry members will benefit from a more comprehensive understanding of the rising greenhouse industry and its effect on the entire fresh field tomato sector.
