Influence of Lodging on Yield and Other Characters in Winter Wheat1
- H. H. Laude and
- Arland W. Pauli2
Yields were reduced about one-third due to lodging 1 to 2 weeks before heading and 1 to 2 weeks after heading. Lodging between those periods caused less reduction averaging about 15% just before heading. Early lodging mainly reduced the number of kernels per head and later lodging reduced the size of the kernel. Protein content of the grain was higher in lodged than standing wheat. The total amount of protein per acre, however, was less in lodged areas.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
