An Exponential Model for Predicting Optimum Plant Density and Maximum Corn Yield1
- S. G. Carmer and
- J. A. Jackobs2
The relationship between yield of corn, Y, and plant density, N, per unit area may be depicted as Y = NAKN. Methods of estimating the parameters A and K and optimum density, Nopt, and maximum yield, Ymax, are presented. Data from a yield trial of 8 single cross hybrids at 4 densities are used to illustrate the usefulness of the model.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
