Abstract


Cauliflower is grown for hypertrophied inflorescences that are used to prepare different dishes, to obtain pickles or for canning. The inflorescences have a high water content (90%). Energy value is low cauliflower inflorescences (118.5 kJ / 100g) due to the low level of energetic substances found in it. Cauliflower is grown in open field and in protected areas. Transylvania climatic conditions are favorable for growing cauliflower. Cauliflower cultures are started with seedlings and this is leading to additional costs for seedlings production. Experience was conducted between 2010-2011, in Reghin, Mures County. Experimental factors were the planting period and the culture method. Experimental culture was established at different times (April, May, June) by two methods (by planting seedlings and direct sowing).
