ON THE IMPACT OF SOWING TIME AND SOWING DENSITY ON YIELD AND QUALITY IN BARLEY PUBLISHEDDaniel Popa, Ioan Borcean
Research was carried out in the hill area of the Meridional Carpathians, in the Horezu Depression, on a typical eutricambosoil strongly levigated with a low acid reaction and a humus content of 2.43%. Results pointed out that the optimal sowing interval is September 10-20. Delaying sowing time until October 10-20 leads to a diminution of the production of over 800 kg/ha. Optimal sowing density was 550 g.g./m 2 . Protein content depending on the sowing period varied between 12.0 and 13.1%, and starch content varied between 56.1 and 59.1%.
