Abstract

Evaluates effects of plant density on production and yield of Tripsacum dactyloides. Higher plant densities had a greater number of vegetative shoots and higher yield. Plots with higher initial stand densities reached equilibrium faster than plants with lower stand densities. Planting at a higher densities may increase production earlier and facilitate stand establishment.
