Competitive interference of plant species in monocultures and mixed stands

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


    A dynamic model is presented for calculating the dry matter yields of individual plant species in a mixed stand by means of parameters derived from a spacing experiment with species grown at 2 densities and harvested at regular intervals. Results are given of trials with different crops, including tall and dwarf peas. The model is intended for use under conditions of near-optimum supply of water and nutrients, where the principal competition is for light. A simple method for measuring relative light interception by species in mixed stands is also described.
