From August 16 to August 18, 2011, Green Giant hosted a group of bloggers in Le Sueur, Minnesota, in the valley where Green Giant has been growing vegetables for more than 100 years. The purpose of this Valley Visit was to teach the group about Green Giant’s long history of farming and some of the innovative vegetable-growing techniques that the company has developed and utilized over the years.
In this video, Senior Scientist Tom Rabaey explains a bit about selecting seeds, planting, and growing sweet corn at Green Giant.
