Development of vegetable cultivars and hybrids intended for outdoor and indoor production (MESTD - 31030)

Abstract

Late cabbage forms a large above-ground mass which requires certain vegetation space in order to thrive. Late cabbage planting density should therefore, start from at least 70 cm inter-row and 50 cm intra-row spacing. Transplanting at the required spacing gives 28.600 plants per hectare. The required spacing provides proper plant development, the formation of rosettes (over 70-80 cm) with large leaves, and compact cabbage heads. Applying cultivation techniques needed for cabbage production and proper spacing results in the formation of regular head mass and expected yield of late cabbage. Proper spacing also provides better use of agricultural mechanization without damage to cabbage heads. On the other hand, higher planting density increases production costs of transplantation, cultivation practices, and workforce.

Keywords
