Florida is the second largest fresh-market cabbage producer in the United States, with an annual value close to $50 million ( FDACS, 2014 ). Florida cabbage is produced during the fall and winter months ( Boswell and Jones, 1941 ; Strandberg and
increases in many vegetables in response to nitrogen deficiency. In the leaves of cabbage, for example, nitrogen deficiency caused an increase in free sugar content, especially that of sucrose ( Hara, 1989 ). Conversely, the sugar content in spinach has been
Cabbage ( Brassica oleracea L. var. capitata ) is one of the world’s most widely cultivated vegetables. In addition to being a significant year-round component of the global vegetable supply, cabbage is of immense importance for human nutrition
Florida is a top producer of cabbage in the United States with an annual average value close to $50 million ( FDACS, 2014 ). Most of the cabbage produced in the state is grown in a bare ground system using seepage irrigation. Seepage is a method of
Cabbage (Brassica oleracea L. Capitata) was direct-seeded with a precision seeder or with a bulk seeder. Treatments with the bulk seeder consisted of blending viable, hybrid cabbage seed with nonviable, open-pollinated seed at several ratios to reduce the cost of planting hybrid seed. The study demonstrated that farmers with small acreages can obtain equivalent net income per acre using bulk seeders compared to using more expensive precision seeders. The study also showed that the additional cost per acre of a precision seeder is small compared to other input costs (for the acreage assumptions used here). Low percentages of hybrid seed in the bulk seeder (10% to 50%) were not economical. Precision seeding to a stand reduced the need for thinning labor and resulted in equivalent yields and net income.
When given a choice, the cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni (Hübner), preferred lettuce for oviposition over chard [Beta vulgaris L. (Cicla group)], cabbage [Brassica oleracea (Capitata group)], broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. [Italica group)], and spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.). Preference did not appear to be related to leaf area or to any factor that enhances the survival of progeny of a particular plant species. A 20- to 29-fold difference in oviposition was noted on lettuce grown under 2 environmental conditions.
several crucifers such as watercress ( Nasturtium officinale L.) and Chinese cabbage ( Brassica campestris ssp. pekinensis L.). Because of the chemopreventive properties of PEITC, it is desirable to characterize gluconasturtiin (precursor of PEITC

Cabbage ( B. oleracea L.) is an important vegetable crop in Florida. In 2010, Florida ranked third nationally in the production of fresh market cabbage accounting for 12.7% of the U.S. total cabbage production ( USDA, 2017a ). In 2016, cabbage
