Cantaloupe production is well adapted to the sand land areas. This type of soil, though not well adapted to corn and general farm crops, may be advantageously devoted to cantaloupe growing.

Cantaloupe marketing in Iowa presents a number of interesting and complex problems. These include consideration of varietal adaptation, the temperature factor, changes in transporting and selling agencies and competing areas of production. The objective of this bulletin is to show clearly what these problems are and to suggest possible methods of meeting them.
