Salifu, M., & Dóka, L. F. (2019). Effects of plant density on photosynthetic characteristics and yield of maize under irrigation condition. Acta Agraria Debreceniensis, (1), 115-118. https://doi.org/10.34101/actaagrar/1/2381
Maize plant response to plant density is an essential agrotechnical factor used for determining grain yield. Three plant densities (60,000 ha-1, 72,500 ha-1, and 85,000 ha-1) were used in this study to ascertain the effect of photosynthetic parameters and grain yield. Results show a significant difference in the photosynthetic parameters (SPAD, NDVI, LAI) and plant height for plant density of 85,000 ha-1. Grain yield and stem diameter were not significantly affected between the different plant densities.
