KNOTT'S HANDBOOK FOR VEGETABLE GROWERS

Fourth Edition

This classic handbook is considered by generations of commercial growers as the standard reference tool for growing vegetable crops. Filled with information, largely in the form of tables and charts, from hard statistics on vegetable production and consumption to fascinating esoterica, such as vegetable botanical names and vegetable names in nine languages (French for cauliflower is chou-fleur; a Spanish onion is a cebolla), Knott's Handbook is part Farmer's Almanac, part encyclopedia, and part dictionary. But with its detailed, practical specifics on planting rates, schedules, and spacing; soils and fertilizers; methods for controlling diseases; greenhouse vegetable and crop production; insect pest identification; harvesting and storage; and vegetable marketing, it's an indispensable helpmate to the farmer in the field and in the marketplace.

Thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect the latest technical advances in vegetable growing, the Fourth Edition contains new information on water management with drip irrigation; seed priming and seed germination tests; plant tissue testing; petiole sap testing; windbreaks; and weed management. A revised discussion of allowable pesticide and herbicide use as well as the newest in worker protection standards makes the Fourth Edition even more relevant to today's commercial grower.

The new edition of Knott's Handbook for Vegetable Growers comes in a convenient portable size and features a sturdy flexible cover with pages that lie flat, on the desk or in the field. Fulfilling James Edward Knott's original vision of a concise, comprehensive, and eminently useable handbook, this new edition of the 1957 classic is the ultimate day-to-day field reference, and as indispensable to a farmer's work as good weather.

This is full of great information it is one of the 2 books I had 2 have 4 my organic gardening class at NW TCC in Ftw Tx. This book along with my other book has everything we need, very informative/2 the point. Well rounded information, you will not regret getting this book especially if you are going 2 be growing your own veg/fruits. Great information!!! I would order from this seller again.

A good book if you need reference material for a thesis in horticulture. It's not very useful if you are a home gardener or small scale vegetable farmer. The crops are dated (there is no specific info on kale for example).

The ABC;s of plant nutrition and vegetable growing. Comprehensive and complete. A good working reference guide.

I knew going in that this handbook was for commercial growers so though I hesitated at the price I thought it would be worth it because it would be so complete. Boy, was I mistaken. I can't believe this is what professional growers use. The information is so hit and miss.

I guess the biggest problem is the inconsistency about which vegetables and crops are covered. In some places they list every vegetable you can think of and in others they list fewer than 15. Need to know what temperature to ship vegetables or how much a crate of yucca weighs? There are pages and pages devoted to it. Need to know germination temperature for seeds? There is less than a page and exactly 12 vegetables listed.

I think most growers [even commercial ones] would be better off searching out the information they need for the specific crops they plan to grow. In fact, much of this book is dedicated to listing websites and government agencies rather than including the information.

One of the best vegetable books ever written.

The book has valid information, but I was seriously disappointed. I think the book is way too expensive for the contents, which are quite brief. You may want to visit a Public Library and look at a copy before you invest in this book. The US Dept of Agriculture Books might be a better find for your interests in Vegetable Growing. Good Luck
