An Experiment on the Methods of Maintaining and Renewing the Mother Stalks in Green Asparagus
Y. W. Chen and R. T. Jean
Asparagus culture in sub-tropical and tropical zones maintain the mother stalks during the harvesting season is necessary. How does asparagus maintain and renew the mother stalks is very important. Results of this experiment showed the mother stalks were maintained 2 in the first cutting season, 3 in the second season during the harvesting periods (we have two cutting seasons in Taiwan).
To renew the mother stalks method were to cut the all and renew in summer time, but to perform it under the fine day was considerable, because the plant’s crowns were injured easily by the much rainfall continuously as those obtained in the field studies.
