Effects of irrigation (water stress), nitrogen, calcium and boron on growth, maturity, nutrient composition, and yield of cauliflower.


  • To evaluate the effects of varying the degree of water stress (irrigation) during the early growth stages of cauliflower (after transplanting) on subsequent growth, maturity, and yield.
  • To measure the effects of varying the time of nitrogen application (solution-32) on growth, maturity, nutrient composition and yield of cauliflower grown with differential total amounts of water.
  • To evaluate the effects of rates and sources of nitrogen (ammonium nitrate and calcium nitrate) and boron on direct seeded cauliflower and transplanted cauliflower (in objective 1).
