Broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica) is one of the most important winter season vegetables and a rich source of chemoprotective molecules, including glucosinolates (GSL). The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of nitrogen (N) and sulfur (S) fertilization on GSL concentration and composition in different parts of broccoli plants. A greenhouse experiment was performed, with four different treatments of sulfur (10, 30, 70, and 150 kg/ha) and three treatments of nitrogen (50, 250… CONTINUE READING
