Determination of the optimal harvest time for once-over harvesting of autumn cauliflower

, : Determination of the optimal harvest time for once-over harvesting of autumn cauliflower. Acta Horticulturae (52): 77-81

In 3-year trials cauliflower cvs White Goal (1970-71) and Delira (1972), both with a relatively short harvesting period, were spaced from 22 000 to 50 000 plants/ha. The percentage of curds with a diameter >12 cm was taken as the harvest criterion. In each case curd quality decreased with increasing stand density. The optimum harvest criterion for a high density stand was about 70% (of curds with a diameter >12 cm) and for a low density stand about 80%.

Dry matter yields decreased markedly when delaying the cutting time of the 2nd growth in combination...

Influence of the harvest time on the composition and seed value of pea and the harvest loss height. It is concluded from a 4-year study of ripening that the optimum time for harvesting green-seeded peas is when the moisture content of the seed is 50-55%, and with yellow-seeded varieties 30%.
