Components of grain yield in wheat
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1977)
Between 1972 and 1976 a series of field experiments were conducted to investigate the factors limiting grain yield in wheat (Triticum aestivum L). Spike population restricted yield when it was below about 500 spikes/m² ...
Yield structure and pre-anthesis carbohydrate status of wheat
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1980)
In the 1977-78 and 1978-79 seasons, three field experiments were conducted on a deep moisture retentive soil to investigate the responses of wheat yield to various seeding rates, rates and times of N application, and ...
Response surfaces of growth and yield of wheat
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1979)
In the 1976-77 and 1977-78 seasons four field experiments using a three factor central composite second order design in incomplete blocks were conducted to quantify the responses of autumn-sown wheats established at five ...
Tiller population dynamics in wheat
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1978)
In field-sown wheat grown in Canterbury, variation in the density of ears accounts for most of the differences between grain yields (Dougherty 1973; Scott 1978; Scott et al. 1977). Ear number is a component of yield which ...
Environmental control of tillering and yield of wheat
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1985)
Four experiments were conducted in controlled and field environments from 1982 to 1984 to establish relationships between dry matter growth rate and tillering, yield components and grain yield of wheat. In the first ...
