SPIN’s Definition of a High-Value Crop

Courtesy of Roxanne C., co-author, SPIN-Farming, Philadelphia, PA

The commonly accepted definition of a high-value crop is one that generates more revenue per acre than a conventional grain crop. SPIN's definition is much more specific: a high-value crop is one that is worth $100 gross per harvest per bed. Characteristics that make a crop high-value are:

  • it matures in about 30 days or less
  • has high market demand.

Examples of high-value crops include beets, leafy greens, carrots and scallion.

High-value crops are used in SPIN relays.
