A preliminary report on asparagus harvest duration, storage carbohydrates and yield in southwestern USA



A preliminary report on asparagus harvest duration, storage carbohydrates and yield in southwestern USA



Asparagus Research Newsletter 7(2): 5-11



One-year-old crowns of Mellowland Select were planted in 1986 at 32 278 plants/ha, and irrigated as needed in each year. Harvesting intensity was either light (harvesting lasting for 0, 2 and 4 weeks, respectively, in 1987, 1988 and 1989), medium or heavy (2 and 4 weeks, respectively, longer than light).
