Asparagus production in the tropics


, : Asparagus production in the tropics. Acta Horticulturae ( 292): 149-153

There is an increasing worldwide demand for asparagus (mainly the fresh product). In temperate climates, it is only possible to produce asparagus in the late spring and early summer, providing an opportunity for producers in the tropics to supply the product during the rest of the year. Production in humid, arid or high altitude tropical areas is discussed; examples of production in the deserts of the USA and Peru are described.

Since December 1985, we have operated upon seven bicycle racers for endofibrosis of the external iliac artery. In all instances, the athletes had started cycling early in life and were engaged in top level competition by the age of 17. The princip...
