Book - Knott's Handbook for Vegetable Growers



SKU: 04000-00-00

Fifth Edition. By Donald N. Maynard and George J. Hochmuth; 582 pages; Softcover, 2007.

Thoroughly updated for today's commercial grower. The ultimate day to day field reference, the latest edition of this classic text is considered to be a standard reference tool for growing vegetable crops. Filled with information and easy to read charts, it includes detailed chapters on plant growing, field planting, soil/fertilizers, water/irrigation, vegetable pests, weed control, harvesting/storage, and marketing. New information in this fourth edition includes managing water with drip irrigation, seed priming/seed germination tests, plant tissue testing, petiole sap testing and windbreaks. Revised discussions on allowable pesticide and herbicide use and worker protection standards complete the picture. Highly recommended!


The Harris Seeds company began catalog operation in 1879. It evolved from the efforts of Joseph Harris who was extremely successful in the selection of superior strains of vegetables and grains. The company became wildly popular because of his basic business philosophy - "Offer my customers a quality product at a fair price and they will return."
