Mel's Crop Cookbook

Jan. 11, 2010 – If we grow a good crop, we like to do it again, if our crop was poor, we like to make the changes required. In either case, the change to – or repetition of – our growing program requires concrete information from the previous season's crops.  Here is Melhem Sawaya's Crop Cookbook as a recipe for success.

Taking one new aspect that is recommended by anybody is both beneficial and dangerous at the same time.  It's beneficial because that is how we improve our culture, as long as we apply the new infortmation on a small scalre and wait until the next crop, to fully adopt the new culture or product. But it can also be fangerous due to not knowing the rest of the aspects currently being applied to that crop.

Since growing poinsettia, or any other crop, is totally an integrated process,  changing one aspect normally means adjusting some of the methods and applications that we currently use to grow our crop.

For guidelines on crop (or more specifically poinsettia) record-keeping explanations click to download Mel's Crop Cookbook.
