Asparagus Production, Read Books, 2010, 9781446525845, 2010, Homer C. Thompson, 124 pages Environmental profile of green asparagus production in a hyper-arid zone in coastal Peru, the Peruvian coast has developed a robust agricultural sector despite the low average rainfall thanks to the availability of water resources from rivers and groundwater. In fact, this area has become one of the main producers of green asparagus worldwide. Expansion of asparagus production and exports in Peru, peru is the one of the most important exporters of asparagus in the world. Its export volume of fresh asparagus is ranked number one, and its export volume of preserved asparagus number two, globally. The objective of this paper is to provide an overview of the recent. Asparagus-the world scene, 2.Statistics In a recent article, Brian Benson of California Asparagus Seeds and Transplants, has published an estimate of the areas being used for asparagus production worldwide. 4. Production aspects It is not easy to produce asparagus out of season in a temperate climate. Results of investigations on timing asparagus production in a temperate climate, investigations were undertaken to determine if the normal harvest period lasting in Poland from late April or early May until 20 June could be extended. Plastic covers were applied to hasten the harvest, and during winter the soil was covered with a layer of pine bark. Asparagus production in Peru, in Peru, asparagus constitutes the most important vegetable for export. The crop is grown along the coastal area of the country with a total of 7 819 ha. Most of the producing areas (7 056 ha) are in the north where the crop has been traditionally grown for canned white. White asparagus production with opaque film in rootstock planting forcing culture, to facilitate the production of white asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) spears in winter, we studied spear blanching in rootstock planting forcing culture. A strong correlation was observed between the fresh weight of one-year-old rootstocks and their yields. Light. KEYNOTE ADDRESS-THE EXPLOSION OF NEW ASPARAGUS PRODUCTION WORLDWIDE AND WHAT IT MEANS, mr. Chairman, invited quests, and participants of the Ninth International Asparagus Symposium, I wish to take this opportunity on behalf of our sponsoring organization, the International Society for Horticultural Science, to welcome one and all to the beautiful state. The role of autotoxins from root residues of the previous crop in the replant disease of asparagus, replant disease is currently, next to problems with the supply of labour, one of the major reasons that the area under asparagus production can not be increased. On fertile, fresh land, suitable for asparagus production, most crops have an eco- nomic life of 10-12 years. Constraints on asparagus production: the association of Ophiomyia simplex (Diptera: Agromyzidae) and Fusarium spp, production of asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) is globally constrained by the early decline syndrome. The primary causal agents of early decline include Fusarium proliferatum (Matsushima) Nirenberg, F. oxysporum Wollenw. f. sp. asparagi SI Cohen. 2009 update of the world's asparagus production areas, spear utilization and production periods, the estimates of asparagus producing areas, the periods of spear production and the utilization of spears are presented for the world's asparagus producing countries. These data are based on contacts with international asparagus researchers, growers and industry. Genealogy of asparagus cultivars, populations selected in important regions of asparagus production were named after countries, regions, and towns. 415. ISHS 1996 Page 2. Nonetheless, asparagus cultivare forming anthocyan gained more importance in breeding and production. Inoculum sources of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. asparagi in asparagus production, soil samples from 59 fields without a history of asparagus growing and differing in their distance from asparagus plantings were tested for infestation with Foa, using a bioassay with asparagus as a bait plant. A high correlation was found between the incidence of infestation and proximity. Asparagus production in California, the bulletin covers all practical aspects of [white and green] asparagus growing in California, where the average yield per acre is said to be 2, 300 lb., some fields producing up to 5, 000 lb. or more. The profitable life of a planting is given as 11 years. It is produced. 2005 Update of the World's Asparagus Production Areas, Spear Utilization, Yields and Production Period, the estimates of asparagus producing areas, the periods of spear production and the utilization of spears are presented for the world's asparagus producing countries. These data are based on contacts with international asparagus researchers, growers and industry. Assessing the technical efficiency of horticultural production in Navarra, Spain, tomato and asparagus production are analysed separately. Both. The results indicated that both tomato and asparagus production are relatively inefficient, with potential in both cases for reducing input or increasing output. These. White asparagus production by covering with a shading film in semi-forcing spring harvest cultivation, this study produced white asparagus (Asparagus officinalis) spears by covering plants with a shading film during semi-forcing spring harvest cultivations of asparagus. White asparagus spears with no anthocyanin pigment were produced in plastic houses, when. World asparagus production areas and periods of production, the estimates of asparagus producing hectares, the periods of spear production and the utilization of spears are presented for the world's asparagus producing countries. These data are based on contacts with international asparagus researchers, growers and industry. Effects of various asparagus production methods on rutin and protodioscin contents in spears and cladophylls, the purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship between various cultivation conditions and the amounts of the rutin (RT) and protodioscin (PD) in asparagus spears. Green and white spears were grown in open culture and under two different blanching. Update of the world's asparagus production areas, spear utilization and production periods, the estimates of asparagus producing areas, the periods of spear production and the utilization of spears are presented for the world's asparagus producing countries. These data are based on contacts with international asparagus researchers, growers and industry. Production and quality of white asparagus grown under opaque rowcovers, black and white plastic rowcovers were established over field-grownJersey Giant'asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.). Spears were cut for 7 weeks. Season soil temperatures were lowest under white plastic and highest without plastic covering. Night air temperature under.
