The effect of watering and nutrients on the quality of Broccoli heads (June – December 2024)

In many fields Broccoli has problems concerning head quality. That can be physiological problems but also problems with fungal or bacterial diseases. Besides looking for resistances against those antagonists and culture measurements, it looks like that the state of the field and the condition of the plants also have an effect on the vulnerability or susceptibility for these disorders. Is there a side-effect of excessive nutrient supply and/or constant watering on the quality of the product?
