Plug transplant age influences growth and yield of cabbage hybrids in lowland Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines

This study aimed to determine the response of three cabbage hybrids as influenced by different ages of plug transplant during the dry season under lowland Nueva Vizcaya conditions. The experiment was laid out in a Split Plot Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. The hybrids, namely, ‘Scorpio’, ‘Sureball F1’, and ‘Greenball F1’, were designated as sub-plot while the ages of plug transplants, 3, 4, and 5-week old seedlings, were designated as main-plot. Results revealed that 3-week old seedlings gave the highest head length, head weight, yield per plot, computed yield per hectare, and head volume. Furthermore, ‘Greenball F1’ and ‘Sureball F1’ have the highest head length. However, ‘Scorpio’ formed head earlier and gave the greatest head width, highest yield per plot, and head volume. In terms of economic profitability, ‘Scorpio’ hybrid using a 3-week old plug transplant gave the highest economic return on expenses (ROE) of 153.93% or P1.53 for every peso invested in the production.
