Effects of seeding method, spacing and fertilizer on Chinese kale (Brassica alboglabra)

Abstract / Synopsis

Two seeding methods, three spacings within 30 cm row and three forms of fertilizer were investigated on Chinese kale ('Kai Lan') in a factorial experiment. Transplanting at 2 weeks after sowing resulted in more vigorous plant growth and higher marketable fresh-weiqnt yield with greater mineral content than direct seeding. Decreasing plant spacing within the row from 30 cm to 20 cm and 10 cm resulted in a progressive increase in fresh-weight yield per hectare, due mainly to a greater number of plants per hectare. A combination, of cowdung and inorganic fertilizer was superior to inorganic fertilizer alone which in turn was superior to a commercial organic-inorganic fertilizer mixuture.
