Date Issued:

Abstract/Description:
The climate and soils of Florida are such that is it possible to grow crops of various kinds at all seasons of the year, including both vegetable and general field crops. The general field crops are usually planted in early spring and summer, while the truck crops are usually planted during the fall, winter, and early spring months. A large number of truck crops are produced in from 45 to 130 days from time of planting, and nearly all of them may be classed as short season crops. That is why, in many cases, two crops a year may be grown on the same land, the vegetable crops during the fall and winter months, and feed and forage crops from May to October.
