Cabbage is among the vegetables which can be found on the market throughout the year, greenhouse crop being a source of fresh cabbage in the cold season. The aim of this experiment was to study the influence of planting density/plant spacing and additional fertilization on the yield and quality traits of greenhouse cabbage. The low plant spacing (50 x 25 cm) revealed the highest yields regardless the applied additional fertilization. Foliar fertilization with Ferticare (24:8:16) as split applications during all growing season, provided the highest marketable head weight, as well as the highest vitamin C content and total soluble solids content of cabbage heads.
