Effect of Row Spacing and Nitrogen Fertilizer on Production of Irrigated Russian Wildrye (Elymus junceus Fisch.). II. Relative Crown and Root Development1

  1. Russell J. Lorenz and
  2. George A. Rogler2



Root development under 3-year-old plots of irrigated Russian wildrye differed when grown at 9- and 36-inch row spacings. Further study revealed a greater root weight per acre under rows 6 inches apart than under rows spaced 18 and 36 inches. Root concentration decreased with increased distance from the center of the row. Volume of roots increased with increasing N up to the 200-pound rate, followed by a decrease at the 400-pound rate.
