Taking advantage of a nice, sunny day, we decided to go out to the fields on our farm in Devon to see the kohlrabi being planted. These were raised in a nursery and come to us in modules. Our field workers sit on a planter which is pulled along behind a tractor and drop the plants into moving cups which puts them into the ground.
Once they’re bigger, we will use a steerage hoe to get rid of the weeds and if the weather is too dry, they will be irrigated. These were planted in mid May and are likely to be harvested around mid July.
