Cropping systems for field production. Chapter uri icon


  • Abstract

    This chapter provides an overview of several components of cropping systems for the production of peppers (Capsicum annuum and C. frutescens) in the field. Soil preparation (bedding and mulching), plant density and spacing, plant management (use of row covers and low tunnels, pruning, and plant training and support), and specialized cropping systems (systems that modify tillage, intercropping, and ratoon cropping) are specifically covered.
