plant density response

Catalogue: GRDC Media
Project leader Mark Seymour, of DAFWA, said last year's canola plant density trials showed that canola establishment can fluctuate very widely - from 30 to 80 per cent - with changes in soil moisture, soil temperature and variety... Mark said a density of 20-30 plants/m 2 was adequate for most varieties at most trial sites to achieve good establishment, ensure robust weed competition and produce yields of about 0.8-2 tonnes/ha... Mark said the trials showed optimal plant density for canola in low and medium rainfall zones tended to vary with variety and herbicide tolerance production system...

Optimum canola densities tested for lower-rainfall zones.. Mark Seymour, leader of the GRDC-DAFWA tactical break crop agronomy project in WA, at a trial site examining canola plant density at Salmon Gums in 2013... Mr Seymour says, overall, the trials highlighted that economic optimum plant density for canola differs for each variety and herbicide-tolerance system and adjustments need to be made according to the rainfall zone...
