I'd like to start by saying the poultry information recently given was very useful for me.  The farm I'm managing would like to raise animals starting next season, and I wouldn't know where to look to find real life information about such otherwise.
I was wondering if anyone has grown belgium endive before?  I understand that you grow a root - witloof endive - and then force them in the dark to produce a chicon, but have no experience growing, forcing, or selling them.  Are there requirements / restrictions for the environment used to force them, and do the chicons store well, or would I have to keep a continuous amount in various stages of "sprouting"?  Thanks for any suggestions
