Knott's Handbook for Vegetable Growers Reviews
This is full of great information it is one of the 2 books I had 2 have 4 my organic gardening class at NW TCC in Ftw Tx. This book along with my other book has everything we need, very informative/2 the point. Well rounded information, you will not regret getting this book especially if you are going 2 be growing your own veg/fruits. Great information!!! I would order from this seller again.
A good book if you need reference material for a thesis in horticulture. It's not very useful if you are a home gardener or small scale vegetable farmer. The crops are dated (there is no specific info on kale for example).
Editions of Handbook for Vegetable Growers originally by Knott, later titled Knott’s Handbook for Vegetable Growers, include:
This is a very useful book. It is not meant to be read, but to be used as a reference guide. It is just packed with useful growing information. Information can be looked up easily.
I knew going in that this handbook was for commercial growers so though I hesitated at the price I thought it would be worth it because it would be so complete. Boy, was I mistaken. I can't believe this is what professional growers use. The information is so hit and miss.
The ABC;s of plant nutrition and vegetable growing. Comprehensive and complete. A good working reference guide.
Letters are too small to read
One of the best vegetable books ever written.
