Milky Pak Choi

Cultivation Environment:

 

Warm climate is preferred.  Can stand hot and humid weather.  Grow well between 20 and 30 in rich humus loamy soil with good drainage and a pH value between 6.0 and 7.0.

 

Planting and Spacing:

 

Transplantation of seedlings is preferable. Germination takes about 5 to 10 days.  The seedlings can be transplanted when coming into 3 true leaves (about 21 days after sowing).

 

Best grown in a net house as the plants are vulnerable to flea beetles.  Plant spacing should be about 12 cm x 25 cm.

 

Fertiliser Application and Management:

 

Basal Dressing: Apply about 1 000 kg of compost, 90 kg of both peanut cake and bone meal to each d.c..

 

Top Dressing: Apply organic liquid fertiliser with a high content of nitrogenous fertiliser once after planting.  Re-apply after 10 days.

 

Perform light ploughing, earthing-up and weeding to facilitate growth of the plants.

 

Harvesting:

 

Ready for harvest when the plants come into 8 to 10 leaves.  It takes about 60 days from sowing to harvesting.
