The Arizona Department of Agriculture is pleased to provide the Arizona Specialty Crop Guide, updated for 2019. This guide has proven to be a valuable resource for making informed decisions regarding Arizona agriculture, whether the decision is where to buy local produce, where to purchase the plants for your landscape project or whether to pursue a career in agriculture.
Arizona agriculture covers crops from A to Z. Asparagus and Zucchini are only two of the hundreds of crops we grow in the Grand Canyon State. Our guide has something for everyone.
The guide was designed to inform the public of the importance and availability of agriculture and to encourage Arizonans to purchase locally-produced fruits, vegetables, nuts and nursery crops. You will find information on Farmers’ Markets, U-Pick Farms, Vineyards, agriculture activities, and career and educational opportunities in agriculture. Read on to learn more about specialty crops which help to make up part of Arizona’s $23.3 billion agriculture industry.
