Vegetables are a growing part of Wisconsin agriculture

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News  Wisconsin is the nation's second-largest maker of vegetables that are processed. The U-S-D-A says the Badger State is the Number-One producer of snap beans. It made 300,000 tons last year, or 45-percent of the national total.

Wisconsin lost its top ranking in the numbers of carrots that are processed. The state's output rose by one-percent, but Washington State had a 35-percent increase in its harvested carrot acres -- and it took over the top spot there.

Wisconsin had the third-highest amount of sweet corn for processing, with about 584,000 tons in 2013. The state also had a 14-percent increase in green peas, and a 27-percent jump in cucumbers which ended up as processed pickles.
