Knott's Handbook for Vegetable Growers

Authoritative and comprehensive go-to reference work for commercial vegetable growers around the world

For more than 65 years, Knott's Handbook for Vegetable Growers has provided generations of commercial growers with the most timely, accessible, and useful information available on the subject, containing key guidance on transplant production, planting rates and spacing, irrigation, fertilization, methods for controlling diseases, and insect pest identification, plus important information on topics such as composting, post-harvest storage and processing, genetically-engineered crops, organic growing, federal regulations and best management practices, environmentally friendly pest management, and food safety.

To allow for convenient and efficient access to the enormous amount of data contained within, most of the information is presented in the form of tables and charts. The work goes above and beyond to provide everything a reader needs to know on the subject, even including a multilanguage vegetable dictionary.

Now in its 6th edition, the work has been significantly expanded and modernized to cover key modern advancements in the industry, such as:
* Computer-based crop monitoring technologies, robotic disease control and harvesting systems, and new protected-ag production systems (including vertical systems and indoor production)
* New production systems pertaining to protected organic agriculture, soil moisture sensing, environmental monitoring, soil health, and soil conservation
* New technologies, including satellite-based decision-making, robotics, and UAVs for increasing production efficiency
* The various advances that have been made in food safety regulations, plus coverage of new invasive pests

Part Farmer's Almanac, part encyclopedia, and part dictionary, Knott's Handbook for Vegetable Growers serves as an invaluable asset for growers, students, and other industry professionals seeking an all-in-one reference for all of the questions they have on both holistic and specific facets of the commercial vegetable industry.
