A “vegetable farmer” is one who operates not less than 1/2 acre of different varieties of vegetable crops. Within 4 months, he must increase his farm to one acre and maintains not less than one acre of vegetables at all times. Entire cultivated area must be kept weed-free at all times, and pest and disease problems must be controlled (for reporting purposes, use Attachment Sample C, set out at the end of this chapter).
