Recommendations:

  • For green spear production, a planting depth of 15cm is normally practiced
  • Preferable cultivation in temperate to warm climate
  • Growing under plastic tunnels can significantly improve early performance and be protected from Phomopsis asp. disease
  • Recommended planting density for green asparagus is 26,000 – 30,000 plants per hectare; for white asparagus is 18,000 – 22,000 plants per hectare
