Broccoli cultivation

"Viva il Broccoli"

Broccoli is a cruciferous plant that belongs to the same family as cauliflower, cabbage and kale. It is grown as an annual plant, although in some regions it can be grown as a biennial plant. It is one of the most nutritious and popular vegetables worldwide due to its high vitamin, mineral and fiber content.

Broccoli can be grown in different types of soil, as long as it is rich in nutrients and well drained. It is important that the soil pH is in the range of 6 to 7. If the soil is acidic, lime can be added to increase the pH. It is also important that the soil has sufficient organic matter to maintain its structure and retain moisture.

Its Cultivation

Broccoli is best grown in cool, moist climates with daytime temperatures between 18 and 23 degrees Celsius and nighttime temperatures between 10 and 16 degrees Celsius. Broccoli seeds can be sown directly into the soil or can be sown in seed trays and transplanted into the soil after a few weeks.

Irrigation is essential for growing broccoli. The soil should be kept moist but not saturated. Excess moisture can lead to fungal diseases. Drip irrigation is a good option to keep the soil moist without saturating it.

It is important to fertilize broccoli crops regularly to ensure healthy growth and good production. Organic or inorganic fertilizers can be used to fertilize the soil. Fertilizer application should be done before planting and during the growing season.

Pest and disease control is also important for broccoli cultivation. Insects that can affect the crop include caterpillars, aphids, and cabbage flies. Common fungal diseases include powdery mildew, white rot, and black rot. Prevention is the best strategy for controlling pests and diseases, but if they do appear, insecticides and fungicides can be used to control them.


Broccoli cultivation in Spain is important and is mainly concentrated in the Levante area and in some areas of Andalusia and Murcia. The region of Murcia is the main producer of broccoli in Spain.


The key

Spain is a major exporter of broccoli to other European Union countries, and broccoli production in Spain has increased in recent years due to an increased demand for healthy and nutritious foods worldwide.
