Vegetable Growing Manual
A guide to vegetable growing in the semi-arid tropics of the Top End of the Northern Territory (Australia)
This vegetable growing manual is a consolidation of twenty years of research, development and general experiences of various NT Government officers in growing vegetables.
The manual covers enterprise planning maintaining soil structure, growing a crop, managing pests and diseases, and cooling and handling vegetables after harvest. There are many variables which impact the viability of a vegetable producing enterprise, and we hope that by highlighting the major points, growers will be challenged to think them through and search out more information.
