MS Research Assistantship in Plant Science/Soil Science
The minimum acreage for urban farms is now one acre in Utah. To sustainably farm at that scale, growers must target premium high-value crops that are locally adapted and use intense management to maximize returns. As a result, cut flowers are rapidly increasing across the Mountain West, as this crop has minimal land requirements and is redefining the profit potential for small acreages.
