Higher plant populations can increase cauliflower yields

Higher plant populations can increase cauliflower yields

California Agriculture 32(8): 14-15

Data are graphically presented on the head size and yield of cauliflowers planted in 2 rows/40-inch bed (centre to centre), with different within-the-row plant spacings. Reducing the spacing from 28 inches (the standard) to 14 inches increased the number of size-16 heads harvested/acre in proportion to the increase in plant numbers, without adversely affecting the number of size-12 heads (the size most in demand). Spacing the plants in a staggered formation conferred no benefit.
