Demand Up For Asian Veggies

March 27, 2013

Rising demand for Asian vegetables in urban areas of California is creating an improved market for produce grown by the San Joaquin Valley’s Asian farmers, reported Yu Wei in the San Francisco-based China Daily.Richard Molinar, UC Cooperative Extension advisor in Fresno County, told the reporter that demand is driving increased cultivation of Asian vegetables in Fresno County.

“We have around 50 to 75 Chinese farmers here in Fresno County and over 2,000 acres of Chinese crops selling locally as well as nationwide,” Molinar said.

The article noted that UC Cooperative Extension offers advice and services to these growers.

“In addition to providing them with technical support, we also help those farmers to find new marketing opportunities,” Molinar said.
