Plant production reached a maximum at 12,000 to 16,000 plants per acre in eastern South Dakota. Grain production reached a maximum at the same level and fell off drastically if population levels exceeded this optimum. Under conditions of drouth, maximum yields may be associated with very low population levels.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
