In self- compatible cauliflowers (European types), the stamens are removed before the opening of the buds as the flowers are already fertile in the bud stage, crossing can be done at the same time. Heterosis breeding has been underway at the Division of Vegetable Crops, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi with main emphasis on the exploitation and development of self-incompatible lines.

With that said, read on to learn more about the issues you may face when planting cauliflower. in the liquid inoculum. The chief characteristics of these important types are presented in Table 18.1. Most of cauliflower produced in USA is hand-tied to prevent head discolouration due to sunlight exposure. It yields 150-200 q/ha in hills and 400-500 q/ha in plains. It is, therefore, necessary to develop techniques which maximise the expression of this character without affecting the assessment of other characters. Cauliflower acreage in India is about 2.5 lakh hectares, in which the seed intake potential is 125 tons of OP cultivars and 45 tons of hybrid cultivars and market value of this seed comes at Rs. EC 12013 and EC 12012 were crossed to combine the earliness of the former and the superior curd qualities like solidness and better staying power of the latter. Planting aromatic herbs such as thyme and sage will help to deter pests while attracting bees and beneficial insects. The Chinese economic boom has contributed enormously to immense development in almost all aspects of the country’s economy.
