Corn Population and Row Spacing – 2018-2019
MCGA Funding $36,225 + WGRF $36,225 + Cap Ag Action MB $68,040
Dr. Yvonne Lawley, Department of Plant Science, University of Manitoba

Project objectives are to:

  • Create a yield-density model for corn in central Manitoba for common row spacings in Manitoba.
  • Quantify the impact of corn row spacing and population on corn dry down.
  • Identify a targeted range of plant populations to optimize future research integrating fertilizer rates.
