How close should broccoli be planted?

How close should broccoli be planted?

Groenten en Fruit 36(36): 50-51

At 3 trial sites broccoli was planted in July at densities ranging from 25 000 to 100 000 plants/ha. Total yields increased as the density rose, but the yields of quality grade I + II heads reached a maximum at around 62 500 plants/ha at one site and at around 50 000 plants/ha at the other 2 sites. With a given number of plants/ha there was little difference in yield between a close (45 cm) and a wide (60 cm) row spacing.
