Ohio produce producers are slated to have a productive harvest after a rough start to the season. Agriculture is the state’s top industry, with nearly 3,000 farms growing cabbage, chili peppers, bell peppers, eggplant and potatoes. In addition to vegetables, Ohio farmers are also growing melons, sweet potatoes, tree nuts and fruits, totaling nearly $200 million in annual sales.

Produce quality is looking strong leading up to harvest, largely due to hot and dry weather after a cooler, wet spring. Many Ohio-based produce farms say business has been strong this summer, and they are anticipating much of the state’s produce harvest to become available in early September.
