More than 1,000 acres of sweet greens have been purchased in a Texas deal that could create a new food desert for local farmers
More than 2,000 acre-feet of sweet greenland have been bought by Texas-based Texas Sweet Greens in a $500 million deal that will create a major food desert in southwest Texas, according to the Associated Press.
The purchase was announced Friday, as the company announced plans to buy nearly 1,100 acres in northwest Austin and a handful of other communities.
The company will create two major food deserts in the area, the AP reported, citing the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The sweet greens will be the largest purchase of the kind to date in the country, and they represent a significant investment in a region that already has been home to a variety of crops and animals, including cows and chickens.
According to the AP, the company hopes to build a large-scale farm with 30,000 square feet of space, a large dairy barn and 30,500 acres of land.
The Austin area has long been home, along with parts of the San Antonio-area, to a growing number of corn and soybean producers.
As Texas has been one of the country’s fastest-growing corn and oilseed-producing states, the sweet greens deal will create an opening for local agriculture to compete for new and old markets.
The AP reported that the sweet greenlands in the Austin area will likely be sold as agricultural land, but will likely include more land for grazing cattle and dairy cows.
A recent study showed that the area has an average annual precipitation of more than 100 millimeters, which would mean that the water in the region is in short supply, according the AP.
However, the area is home to some of the most biodiverse and productive farmland in the world.
The area is also home to more than 20,000 native grasslands, which are an important part of the Texas landscape.
According the AP: Sweet greens are a versatile crop that can grow on the tops of oak trees and along the banks of the Rio Grande.
The plant’s root system has evolved over hundreds of years, producing its own edible seeds and tubers.
Sweet greens, also known as sweet corn, can be eaten as a vegetable, bread, jam or oil.
They can also be used as an ingredient in bread, salad dressing, soups, sauces, souptas, dips, and a variety for sauces.
The greenhouses also are great for storing the greens, which can be frozen or canned.
The Texas Department of State Agriculture (TSDA) estimates that about 10,000 hectares of sweet-greens land could be developed over the next 15 years.
The agreement, according a TSDA press release, is expected to be completed by 2025.
The announcement came after a number of reports on the drought that began in 2014, when drought conditions led to crop losses in the state and caused a shortage of water in some areas.
That led to an increase in the number of people and businesses needing water.
The drought also led to increased pressure on agriculture, as a number companies cut back on what they are doing to keep their businesses operating.
The increase in drought conditions, and the subsequent demand for water, has prompted the state to increase taxes on farmers.
The latest drought in Texas led to widespread property and business closures.
In March, Gov.
Greg Abbott announced the extension of a mandatory 30-day extension of water restrictions, which has led to more farmers closing and causing major disruptions to the economy.
According a statement by the governor’s office, the drought has led farmers to cut back or cut their budgets in a variety, and has made it more difficult for them to grow crops.
“The state has been unable to meet the needs of Texas farmers and businesses because of the drought,” the statement read.
The news comes as Texas Gov.
David Dewhurst has said he is considering a proposal to create a statewide water fund, and to use that money to buy and sell water-rich farmland to help provide water to farmers and to water-dependent areas of the state.
“There is a tremendous amount of work to be done,” Dewhurst told the AP at the time.
