Reductions in yield due to 3 rates of plant removal (15, 30, and 45%) at 3 stages of plant growth were relatively small.

An increased number of pods per plant appeared to be the component of yield primarily responsible for this compensation.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
