Title: Barley Response to Planting Rate in Northeastern North Dakota
Author: Lukach, John R.; Hanson, Bryan K.
Description: Barley is a major, small grain crop in NE North Dakota. Ensuring that these plants produce stands that are adequate enough to result in optimum yield is of top concern. Soil crusting was cited as one impediment to such formation. Temperature and the rate of precipitation was listed as a factor for spotty formation of barley stands. The optimum yield for barley occurred that resulted at 37 plants per square foot. Plant rates of 17 or less per sq ft was cited as possibly requiring reseeding. It is difficult to predict stand formation given the many factors that vary from field to field. A number of variables were taken into several studies conducted in this research covered here. Lodging rates and kernel plumpness were also discussed.
