Abstract

With both yield and quality changes occurring rapidly from day to day, a simple objective method of field sampling broccoli is highly desirable for a once-over harvest operation by hand and is essential for machine harvesting. Studies reported here indicate the difficulty in devising such a sampling method and point out the need for good judgment by farmers and field men until a good method is developed.
