Net radiation 1 meter above the crop and 6 inches above the soil surface was measured in a corn field planted with different populations and planting patterns. The ratio of the net radiation at the ground to that above the crop showed that a higher rate of planting resulted in a lower value of the ratio. With the same population, the closer the row spacing the lower was the ratio.
