Adams, Extension Entomologist. This publication is the result of a joint effort among the seven disciplines in the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences that serve the Georgia vegetable industry. Each topic focuses on a particular aspect of production and provides information on the latest management technology for that phase of production. It is hoped that the information contained in this publication will assist growers in improving profitability. Chemical pest control recommendations are subject to change from year to year; thus, only general pest control guidelines are mentioned in this publication.
Cabbage comprising several cultivars of Brassica oleracea is a leafy green, red purple , or white pale green biennial plant grown as an annual vegetable crop for its dense-leaved heads. It is descended from the wild cabbage B. Smooth-leafed, firm-headed green cabbages are the most common, with smooth-leafed purple cabbages and crinkle-leafed savoy cabbages of both colours being rarer. Under conditions of long sunny days, such as those found at high northern latitudes in summer, cabbages can grow quite large. As of [update] , the heaviest cabbage was

Brassica napus is a leading oilseed crop throughout many parts of the world. It is well adapted to long day photoperiods, however, it does not adapt well to short day subtropical regions. Short duration B. From five different combinations, 17 hybrid plants were obtained in both directions.
The vegetable seed sector in sub-Saharan Africa has received little attention in the development agenda.
Skip to content. Cabbage is the most widely grown and easy to grow of the cole crops. Cabbage varieties are available that mature in as little as 60 days or as much as days from transplanting. The early and mid-season varieties are generally better suited for fresh market sales where small heads of 3 to 4 lbs are desired. A number of excellent cauliflower and broccoli varieties are available which range in maturity from 55 to 95 days for cauliflower and 55 to 75 days for broccoli.
Growth, yield, and oil content of Brassica species under Brazilian tropical conditions. Brassica oilseed species are becoming increasingly popular for industrial uses, with emphasis on biodiesel. It is of importance to evaluate the yield and oil production potential of nontraditional oilseeds for use as feedstock in Brazil. In this study, growth, yield, and oil content and their correlations were determined for eight accessions of B. Significant variation was observed between B. Brassica rapa accessions flowered early, with an average cycle of 97 days, whereas B. Accessions of Brassica species had high oil yields, reaching kg ha -1 of oil yield for B.
Mississippi livestock producers looking for methods to reduce feeding costs may find forage brassicas worth exploring. Brassicas fit well with forage-based production systems by extending the grazing season into the late fall and early spring. The fall grazing of brassicas along with other production techniques, such as accumulating forage for grazing at a later time through intensive rotational stocking and stockpiling, could allow producers to rely on forage as the main source of nutrition for their livestock enterprise. Forage brassicas are a cool-season crop. Members of the forage brassica family include kale, rape, swede, and turnips. These are annual crops that are highly productive, very digestible, and, depending on the species, can normally be grazed 80 to days after seeding. Vegetative tops stems plus leaves and roots bulbs can be grazed with most species.
