Broccoli can be grown on a wide variety of soils but it does best on a well-drained, loam soil, rich with organic matter. Sandy loams are preferred for early crops. Adjust soil pH to 6.5-6.8 to maximize yields.
Cauliflower is a relatively cool-season crop, with optimum growth temperature around 17 °C, but it also tolerates rather low temperatures. It also tolerates wide range of pH values (5.5–7.5) and rather brackish soils.
Celery is a heavy feeder so unless the soil is extremely fertile, it normally requires the application of large quantities of nutrients. Up to 100 MT/ha may be applied but keep nitrogen levels under control.
Lettuce requires cool temperatures of 15–20 °C. The iceberg varieties will not form heads in hotter conditions. It is a rapid growing crop with a life-cycle of 45-70 days from seeding/planting to harvest.
Onion requires potassium at rates equal to nitrogen, but calcium is required at considerably higher rates. High nutrient availability is important during bulb-formation; in this phase a high K:N ratio is required.
Tomato is a high potassium and calcium requiring crop. Potassium is removed at a rate ~80% higher than nitrogen. Calcium deficiency inevitably produces "blossom-end rot" of the fruit. Tomatoes are rather resistant to salinity, and cherry-tomatoes even develop a sweeter taste when grown under moderate salinity.
