In field trials during Sept.-Dec. 1968, 35-day-old seedlings of winter-maturing rice Nigersail, normally transplanted in mid-July, were transplanted on 13 Sept. in rows 10- or 12-in apart, at a constant hill spacing of 6 in and with 1, 2, 3 or 4 seedlings/hill. Increasing the number of seedlings/hill from 1 to 2, 3 or 4 increased the number of grains/hill and increased grain yields from about 46 lb/0.015 ha to about 52.5, 58 or 61.5 lb/0.015 ha, respectively.
