Cauliflower Nitrogen Uptake and Partitioning
Seasonal N Uptake
The N uptake curve is based on data from eight summer-planted commercial cauliflower fields in the Salinas Valley .
Less than one third of the total aboveground N is removed with the harvested parts [1,2].
Nitrogen Removed at Harvest
Cauliflower yield and N removed at harvest from different studies.
