    Proposal summary:

    High-density herb production may meet a market need and improve profits, and the farmer will collect and evaluate data on high-density costs such as technology, space requirements, and labor, as well as track weed, insect, and wildlife damage. The goal is to see if high-density herb production is more profitable than conventional methods. Project results will be presented at conferences and will be offered for publication in herb industry newsletters.
