Light interception and yield of peppers grown under glass in relation to plant spacing

, : Light interception and yield of peppers grown under glass in relation to plant spacing. Acta Horticulturae (32): 149-159

Density, planting pattern and row orientation all influenced light interception by Capsicum frutescens Caroussel plants, but only density affected the dry matter yield. Yield-density relations conformed to the pattern established for other crops. The biological yield (dry matter/m2) was stable over a wide range of higher densities but the proportion of dry matter recovered in the fruit, the individual fruit weight, and the proportion of red fruit declined with rising density.
