COMMERCIAL Farms

Commercial brocofarms use chemicals to stop damage from insects. Organic farmers use a variety of chemical free methods to protect plants. Rows are still the preferred method for growing broccoli however, plant protection, weeding and watering are a challenge.

Growing Broccoli

Growing broccoli in a circle is superior to growing broccoli in rows. Broccoli plants are watered from the center of the circle underneath the plant canopy to prevent waterborne diseases.

Broccoli Plants

Broccoli plants can be planted closer together. Weeding is virtually eliminated with a Crop Circle weed barrier and plants can be covered with standard sized insect netting.

FARM Harvest

Just over 430 large heads (some weight 5 pounds) were cut from from 450 plants the first harvest. Immediately, the plants began secondary heading, which produced 2,300 half-sized mini-heads 30 days later. Early Green Goliath is the preferred broccoli variety because of its size, taste and after harvest secondary head production.
