KANO, Cristiaini et al. Broccoli production in function of container type and seedling age. Ciênc. agrotec. [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.1, pp. 110-114. ISSN 1413-7054. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-70542008000100016.
The experiment was carried out from March to August 2005, at FCA/UNESP in São Manuel, São Paulo State. The purpose of the present research was to study the effects of type of extended polystyrene trays with 128 and 200 cells and seedling ages of 32, 39, 46 and 53 days after sowing at transplanting in the production of broccoli 'Legacy'. The experimental outline was in randomized blocks, with eight replications. Head weight and diameter and leave number per plant were evaluated. It was observed that container type and seedlings age didn't influence the head weight and diameter and the leave number per plant.
