Chapter synopsis: Plasticulture with microirrigation enhances vegetable crop competitiveness in two ways: through sustainable production practices for water and nutrient management and increased production system resiliency to climate variability. This chapter introduces sustainable cultivation of cabbage on plasticulture. The chapter examines plant population studies, the importance of planting dates and irrigation scheduling strategies for cabbage grown using plastic mulch. The chapter addresses nitrogen management, explores the economic benefits of plasticulture and outlines extension efforts on the adoption of best management practices.
