Abstract

Asparagus crowns were found to grow upward as new buds were formed above the older crowns. All crowns survived during the duration of this experiment] but those crowns planted upside-down yielded significantly less in both weight and number of spears than those planted upright (normal), sideways, or with roots folded under.
