Except at the lowest sowing density (50 hills/m2), the number of spikelets per panicle, number of grains and 1000-grain weight were little affected by seeding density or by basal application of up to 24.5 g/m2 N. In a second experiment with 9.6 g N applied basally, and up to 6.0 g N as top-dressing, a seeding density of 100-150 hills/m2 and high rates of top-dressing gave the best grain-yield increases.
