CULTURAL PRACTICE ADAPTATION FOR MECHANICALLY HARVEST PICKLING CUCUMBERS

in HortScience

Mechanically harvested pickling cucumbers are a once-over destructive harvest system. Gynoecious hybrids are planted at high populations to obtain high yields and to concentrate maturity. Population, row width, plant spacing, and uniform emergence all affect yield and maturity. 65,000 plants/acre in 26 inch rows were found to optimize yield and provide the highest percentage of fruit at the desired uniform size.
