Higher yield with uniform plant stands

What’s the cost of an uneven, thin canola plant stand? Western Canadian researchers have put a number to it. Spatially uniform plant stands increased canola yield by up to 32 per cent at low-yielding sites and by up to 20 per cent at high yielding sites compared to non-uniform plant stands. If your average yield is in the 30 bushel per acre range, a 32 per cent loss is 9.6 bushels per acre or about $96 per acre.
