Factors affecting the maturity of early and summer cauliflowers

, : Factors affecting the maturity of early and summer cauliflowers. Acta Horticulturae (52): 57-64

Supplementary illumination of seedlings and growing to maturity under plastic advanced maturity. For cropping from August to early October, a comparison between sowing dates based on actual and average accumulated temperature intervals improved the ability to plan calendar sowings but successive plantings of cold stored plants from one sowing date also gave good continuity. Good quality young transplants gave even maturity.
