Southwest Purdue Agricultural Program (SWPAP)

What We Do

The SWPAP team's major focus is vegetable production, specifically cantaloupe and watermelon. Combined, watermelons and cantaloupes are grown on nearly 10,000 acres in the state, with the majority of the acreage in southwest Indiana. Annually watermelon and cantaloupe are valued at nearly $50 million. The creation of the program continues to allow for research-based extension information to be developed and delivered to vegetable and agronomic crop farmers in this region with similar environmental conditions and soil types.
