Healing Alternative

Record #:
With the federal government's cancellation of basic commodities price supports in 1996, the state's farmers received lower prices for items including hogs, soybeans, and tobacco. The Specialty-Crops Program, started in 1997, seeks to develop niche crops for farmers to supplement lost income. Echinacea, a plant with healing properties, is being studied as a possible niche crop.
