The effect of different sowing densities on the occurrence of weeds and the amount of yield is studied in the field. The largest crop was obtained with the smallest amount of seeding.
The formation of wages has begun! Picture taken 3th July.
There were as many weeds in the different areas of the block so higher seeding density didn’t reduce their number.
