When it comes to growing commercial broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower, crop rotation, tillage, and a sound herbicide program are all often critical components for long-term success. This circular focuses on developing sound herbicide programs for cole crops while minimizing crop injury for the following production systems: 1) transplanting into mulch, 2) transplanting into bare ground, and 3) seeding into bare ground.

Cabbage and leafy greens (collards, kale, mustard greens, and turnip greens) are important commercial vegetable crops in North Carolina. Although growers in the state supply only about 4 percent of U.S. cabbage production, during the month of June they produce one-fourth of the do-mestic supply. Leafy greens are shipped from the state year-round, but the bulk of the crop is shipped in late spring and early summer. Mishandling can easily damage these crops, but most serious postharvest losses can be prevented.
