REACTION TO NITROGEN FERTILIZATION OF A SUGAR MAIZE ASSORTMENT PUBLISHEDGheorghe David, Paul Pîrşan, Florin Imbrea, Lucian Botoş
The authors present in this paper a synthesis of results of the experimental cycle 2004-2006, a period characterised by very different climate conditions and that points out the good behaviour of all experimental hybrids. Experimental results point out the favourable reaction of the hybrids to mineral fertilisation, average yield reaching over 10,000 kg/ha of ears harvested at the “milk-wax” maturity period. Optimal sowing density for this crop as shown by experimental data is 65,000 plants/ha.
