Cauliflower growers need high gields to justiftl high land costs. New spacing practices can increase gields bg as much as 50 percent.Increasing plant populations by 50 percent or more over the conventional planting of one row per bed calls for extra expense, special equipment, and inconvenience, but spacing experiments show costs are justified.
