Description: An ideal, state-of-the-art guide for anyone interested in the fundamentals of vegetables and crop production, this practical provides a broad overview of the history, principles and practices of growing vegetable crops. Although focusing on commercial production, much of the material is applicable for home use, with many facts, tips and guidelines ideal for backyard and weekend gardeners.

Divides material into three sections: I - Overview of Vegetable Crops explains the history of vegetable crops and America's vegetable industry in easy-to-understand terms, and looks at classifying vegetables and how environmental factors affect crop growth. II - Common Practices Used to Grow Vegetables considers general practices used in vegetable crop production, with discussions on preparing the field, choosing cultivars, planting, watering, extending the growing season, handling pests, harvesting, and marketing, and more, plus highlights the uses and nutritional benefits of eating vegetables. III - Crop Specific Characteristics and Growing Practices examines the botanical and production aspects of specific vegetable crops, pragmatically organizing discussions according to characteristics of family grouping and crop use.
