A modification of the method of the regular stand density increment


The employment of the classic stand density experiments in studies of the horizontal organization of plant stands is very laborious and requires a large experimental field area. The procedure based on the regular thickening of plant stands is more convenient for plants grown in a lower density. A simplified modification of this method is described which keeps a constant square nutritional area regardless of the plant densities.
