Broccoli Cultivation In Warmer Climates (pp. 251-262) $100.00
Authors:  (Karistsapol Nooprom, Program in Agricultural Technology, Faculty of Agricultural Technology, Songkla Rajabhat University, Muang, Songkhla, Thailand)
Abstract:
Broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica) is one of the most popular vegetable crops
grown in many countries around the world due to its high nutritional value. It has the
most specific climate and an agricultural requirement, which limits its commercial
cultivation to a few favored locations around the globe, due to the fact that it is the best
suited to countries or areas with a cooler climate.
Broccoli cultivation has been expanding in recent years, especially in tropical
countries like Thailand. For the best cultivation results, broccoli has to be planted in the
north of Thailand where the climate is cooler, to ensure maximum cultivation results, or
in the North-east during the winter season. As you progress further down to the south of
Thailand, the climate becomes increasingly more tropical because of the high light
intensity and higher climate conditions during the dry season. High rain fall during the
raining season also results in the low growth of broccoli and therefore results into small
cultivation units and causes broccoli cultivation to come to a halt.
Therefore it is pivotal to select suitable broccoli cultivars, planting dates, and
planting methods for each season to ensure successful broccoli cultivation in tropical
climates.
