Getting started in the production of field-grown, specialty cut flowers

Specialty cut flowers are one of the most profitable field crops to grow. Lynn Byczynski, editor of the Growing For Market newsletter, estimates a value of $25,000 to $35,000 per acre for field-grown cuts. The most basic requirements are at least half an acre of open, arable land, a rototiller, and, of course, time and effort.

For many greenhouse and nursery operations, mid-summer business is slower, relative to spring. A field-grown cut flower business is a viable option to fill in the summer production and cash flow gap.

This publication provides an overview of production systems, inputs, handling, and marketing channels for specialty cut flowers.
