dc.description.abstract <p>In January 2001, a group of west-central Iowa farmers and supporters came together to research raising edible beans and other alternative crops. The experiment has grown into the Greene Bean Project, Alternative Crop Enterprises of Iowa, LLC whose members have 1000 acres of alternative crops in 18 Iowa counties. In 2004, the Greene Bean Project farmers produced over 700 acres of azuki (small red edible bean) for export to Japan. This paper will share the cooperatives introduction, progression and issues of azuki production in Iowa and direct marketing to Japan.</p>
