hybrids as a method to optimize marketable yield. South Carolina broccoli production exemplifies production in many eastern states in that growers plant up to ≈50,000 plants/ha and yield up to ≈10,000 kg·ha −1 or more ( Atallah and Gomez, 2013 ). On the

selected 3 to 4 weeks after emergence, the yield of marketable grade beets increased ( Benjamin and Bell, 1985 ). In the field, uneven moisture, soil crusting, and diseases can reduce and cause unevenness in stands. To overcome these factors, growers

. Because market prices and yields were somewhat uncertain and costs of these four treatments in the study differed, it is essential for growers to know the minimum benefit needed to cover both the fixed and variable costs of production and marketing. The
