Overview

KNOTT\'S HANDBOOK FOR VEGETABLE GROWERS

Fourth Edition

This classic handbook is considered by generations of commercial growers as the standard reference tool for growing vegetable crops. Filled with information, largely in the form of tables and charts, from hard statistics on vegetable production and consumption to fascinating esoterica, such as vegetable botanical names and vegetable names in nine languages (French for cauliflower is chou-fleur; a Spanish onion is a cebolla), Knott\'s Handbook is part Farmer\'s Almanac, part encyclopedia, and part dictionary. But with its detailed, practical specifics on planting rates, schedules, and spacing; soils and fertilizers; methods for controlling diseases; greenhouse vegetable and crop production; insect pest identification; harvesting and storage; and vegetable marketing, it\'s an indispensable helpmate to the farmer in the field and in the marketplace.

Thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect the latest technical advances in vegetable growing, the Fourth Edition contains new information on water management with drip irrigation; seed priming and seed germination tests; plant tissue testing; petiole sap testing; windbreaks; and weed management. A revised discussion of allowable pesticide and herbicide use as well as the newest in worker protection standards makes the Fourth Edition even more relevant to today\'s commercial grower.

The new edition of Knott\'s Handbook for Vegetable Growers comes in a convenient portable size and features a sturdy flexible cover with pages that lie flat, on the desk or in the field. Fulfilling James Edward Knott\'s original vision of a concise, comprehensive, and eminently useable handbook, this new edition of the 1957 classic is the ultimate day-to-day field reference, and as indispensable to a farmer\'s work as good weather.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Intended for commercial growers, the guide is a rich source of information for anyone who aims to harness the power of photosynthesis, perhaps especially serious gardeners. Metric conversion tables, fertilizer application methods, and tips for shipping and packaging round out a volume that strikes a perfect balance between robust content and lucid presentation." (American Reference Books Annual, 2008)

"It certainly provides the user with a wealth of current information on vegetable crop production and marketing in a well-organized and clearly presented manner." (HorTechnology, July-Sept 2007)
