Kohlrabi is a vegetable crop that is found in Brassicaceae family and it is rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C. Vitamin C helps in body tissue repair and keeps the immune system strong, so exploring vitamin C sources is potentially a great contribution to improve human health. Studies have confirmed that applying fertilizers on the kohlrabi will increase its yields and quality. However, there are no comparisons of those effects by using different fertilizer levels in different kohlrabi cultivars. The purpose of this study is to determine if fertilizer application affects Kohlrabi yield in terms of the swollen stem (edible part) and the vitamin C content and if those effects are the same in different kohlrabi cultivars.
