Influence of harvest duration on yield and quality of asparagus



Influence of harvest duration on yield and quality of asparagus



Acta Horticulturae (589): 65-71



A ten-year (1987-97) field trial was carried out in Germany to investigate the effect of harvest duration on yield and quality of white asparagus (Asparagus officinalis Lukullus). All plots were harvested for four and eight weeks in years one and ten, respectively. In the other eight years there were six treatments with harvest durations ranging from four to nine weeks per season, with the end of harvest varying from 25 May to 29 June.
