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. Growers are urged to consult the current Georgia Pest Management Handbook or check with their local county Extension agent regarding the most recent chemical recommendations. Mention of tradenames in this publication is neither an endorsement of a particular product nor a lack of endorsement for similar products.
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.
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 pp Cite as. The genus Brassica is one of 51 genera in the tribe Brassiceae belonging to the crucifer family, and is the economically most important genus within this tribe, containing 37 different species Gomez-Campo Many crop species are included in the Brassica genus, which provide edible roots, leaves, stems, buds, flowers and seed. Next in agronomic importance are the genera Raphanus , cultivated for its edible roots and Sinapis as a source of condiments. There are many wild relatives that have potential as sources for oil, condiments and other products.
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.
The vegetable seed sector in sub-Saharan Africa has received little attention in the development agenda. World Vegetable Center scientists teamed up with experts and managers of leading vegetable seed companies in Asia and Africa to define a way forward. A new project focuses on school gardens as the gateway to produce and promote nutrient-rich foods to students, parents and the community. The project to engage women and youth in vegetable production and processing got off to a good start with the participation of government officials, partners, and donors.
