Modelling the effects of sowing date and plant density on the yield and timing of development of Brussels sprouts (Brassica oleracea)



Modelling the effects of sowing date and plant density on the yield and timing of development of Brussels sprouts (Brassica oleracea)



Journal of Agricultural Science 124(2): 253-263



Using data obtained from experiments with cultivars Widgeon and Thor, the effects of sowing date and plant density are modelled in relation to 3 variables: Ym, the maximum yield the crop can produce; tau , the interval from sowing to Yb/Ym = 0.5, where Yb is the yield of Brussels sprout buttons; and Nb, the number of buttons on a plant stem. Ym is well related to the quantity of solar energy which the crop intercepts during the main period of growth.
