Specialty Ag Publications.

What is `specialty ag'? At Agri Marketing, we define it as horticulture, floriculture, fruit and nut crops, and turf and ornamental production. We realize that many broad-based farm publications, plus regional and state magazines devote sections and editorial coverage to these topics and crops, but do not completely focus on specialty agriculture.

Listed below are publications taken from the Marketing Services Guide that target `specialty ag' and devote themselves 100% to the specialty crops and markets mentioned above. We've undoubtedly overlooked a few, or did not receive responses from those contacted. Kindly inform us if you know of any others.
