We harvested our cabbage trial this year in late July at the Muscatine Island Research Farm, Fruitland, IA. Treatments included three rates of biochar (2.5, 5, or 10 T/A) and a control (0T/A) that was incorporated and tilled into the soil (6-8" depth). Cabbage cultivar grown was 'Bronco'. We had a great season; cabbage grew well, and we had It has a nice rounded head that is protected by waxy leaves. Check out some pictures from the plot. Also attached are some blooper snaps of lab having fun !
