The article presents information about the cutting-edge technology employed in farms. At Walter P. Rawl and Sons, tradition and legend work alongside cuttingedge technology and new ideas. Dating back to its founders, Rawl and Sons has used innovation to insure a steady year-round supply of that Southern staple called "greens" and kept the family on the cutting edge trend-wise, as well. The family operation raises 2,500 acres of greens and other vegetables. The farm ships about 35 tractor-trailer loads of greens out of their brand new Pelion, South Carolina facilities each week.
