Abstract


Cauliflower is grown for hypertrophic inflorescences used in the preparation of various meals and pickles or in the canning industry. Inflorescences have a high water content (90%). The energy value of cauliflower inflorescences is low (118.5 kj / 100g) due to the relatively low content of energy. The cauliflower culture is practiced in the field as well as in protected areas. The pedo-climatic conditions in Transylvania are favorable for the cultivation of cauliflower because it behaves like a wet and cool climate plant. The hot and dry periods in the inflorescence phase have a negative effect on plant growth but also on production.The experience was carried out during 2016, in the Apahida-Juc area, Cluj County. Experimental factors were the cultivar and plumage of plants. Experimental culture was set up in the field in June.
