Michigan Crops Research Guide: Celery

This guide will help identify current and historic information and documents on selected crops grown in Michigan.

Current information

When researching for celery, it is considered a Vegetable and the information will be located in the Vegetable tables, not the Crop/Field Crop tables.

 

Vegetable Inventory
Vegetable Inventories have been sporatically conducted.  The following years are available: 1992-93, 1995-96, 1998-99, 2001-02 and 2005-06.
Based on this trend, it's possible a new Inventory, inclding celery data, will be issued soon.
