Spacing experiments on bulbs: principles and practice

Acta Horticulturae (47): 391-396

Spacing experiments on bulbs: principles and practice

Currently-used planting densities for narcissus and tulip are considered in relation to the morphological peculiarities of the plants. For narcissus, optimum densities can be described in terms of weight of bulbs planted per unit area. For tulip, a method is described for deriving optimum planting densities if costs of planting material and land are known.

The trials were carried out near Troms<o> during 1940-3. Three row spacings of 50, 60 and 70 cm. were used, with spaces of 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40cm. between seed potatoes in the row. Seed sizes used were: 25, 50 and 100 g. Highest tuber y...

Heavy fertilizing at rates of one and a half times the normal makes the...

Dutch yellow shallots of two sizes (over 10.25 in. diameter, 20 per lb., and less than 10.25 in. diameter, 53 per lb.) were planted at three row distances and four plant distances, at two manurial levels, on a fertile loam. The mean yield obtained...

The effect of spacing and manuring on the composition of the foliage of shallots and globe beet, considered in relation to the growth of the plants. Globe beets and shallots were grown at 2 manurial levels and 12 spacing distances for study of growth and chemical analysis. With shallots the unit of growth was weight of 100 daughter bulbs, with beets the unit was root-weight. Chemical results w...
