Cucumbers: Processing and Fresh Market
Pickles grow on many soil textures, ranging from sandy loams and silt loams to clay loams. Select soils that are well-drained and high in organic matter. Wet fields are slow to warm and will result in poor yields. There should be a minimum of a 3-year rotation with other cucurbits. Do not plant pickles on land that has been treated the previous year with a triazine herbicide, such as Atrazine, Sencor/Lexone or Karmex.
