Partitioning of radiation within a maize crop

Partitioning of radiation within a maize crop

In plot experiments at Kabete in 1975, maize Hybrid 512 was grown at high (110 741 plants/ha), normal (51 667 plants/ha) and low (24 630 plants/ha) densities and the global and net radiation and reflection and transmission coeff. were measured 35 cm above the soil and 100 cm above the canopy during the vegetative, flowering and ripening stages. Radiation reflection above the canopy increased and net radiation below the canopy decreased with increase in crop density at all growth stages.
