Eleven cauliflower cultivars were evaluate i inretra. F.1'opdaon a
Myakka fine sand for the 1979-80 winter growing season.~Seeds-were-hot
water treated at 50"C for 25 minutes on October 24, 1979. Seedbeds were
hand planted on October 26. Plants were transplanted on December 11, 1979,
at AREC-Sanford on soil previously fumigated with Shell D-D to control
nematodes. Plants were spaced 30 cm apart with two rows on low beds (about
15 cm high) on 1.5 m centers with a top width of 70 cm. Plots were 6.1 m
long with a total of 40 plants per plot. Overhead irrigation was used
after transplanting (about 2.5 cm each time) and on December 18, January 8
and 22. Five applications of a 5-5-8 fertilizer at 627 kg/ha were hand
applied and worked in at about two week intervals.

The first harvest was on February 8, 1980, and the last on March 14.
Each cultivar was harvested when heads were mature. Some cultivars were
harvested up to seven times, but usually over 50% of the marketable heads
were harvested in two harvests.

Data for plant stand, marketable yield, and average size are found in
Table 1.
