Lack of ready labor key issue for specialty growers

A lack of ready labor continues to be a key issue for specialty growers. A conference in Springfield heard that message from Kevin Hosey with Knoxville, Tennessee based Seedway Seed.

 

 

Seedway offers a full line of commercial vegetables and serve as dealers for about 50 major seed companies.
Their biggest seller in Illinois is sweet corn followed by pumpkins, cucumbers and squash.
