Farmworker housing plays an increasingly crucial role in the success of many agricultural crops. As the labor market continues to tighten, the availability of housing is becoming a key advantage in recruiting. Growers who can offer safe housing to their seasonal and migrant farmworkers are generally more attractive to prospective workers.
