Specialty Lettuce and Greens: Organic Production was published in 2002 by the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service (ATTRA), which provides farmers and educators information on sustainable agricultural practices, and was written by George Kuepper, Janet Bachmann and Raeven Thomas. This publication goes over the different varieties of specialty lettuce and “mesclun” (mixed baby lettuces and other greens), and their market value. Soil preparation, propagation, crop scheduling (with keeping a steady supply through the marketing season in mind), pest management for insects, disease and weeds, harvesting, and post-harvest handling are also discussed in some detail.
