In direct-seeded asparagus fields, areas where plants are missing (skips) can be filled in two times during the year following the seeding operation. Two methods discussed here have been used successfully to fill skips in direct-seeded experimental plantings at the University of California Agricultural Experiment Station at Davis: (1) transplanting one-year-old asparagus crowns or (2) planting asparagus seedlings that have produced secondary stems and roots.
