Abstract:

The purpose of this research is Effect of planting methods and plant density, on yield and yield component of fodder maize. Salinity is a major abiotic factor that limits agricultural crop production. More than 8 million hectare of world fields involved saline soils. Effect of different planting methods and plant density on yield and yield components of fodder maize studied during 2011 growth season. KSC704 variety of fodder maize planted in rural district of Abravan at south east of Mashhad. Main plots belonged to three levels of planting method (Furrow planting, ridge planting and double rows of planting on ridge). Sub plots belonged to three levels of plant density (90,000; 110,000 and 130,000 plant/ha). A split plot experiment conducted base on randomized complete design with three replications. Results showed that different planting methods had significant effect on fodder yield, ear weight, quality index and leaf area index of plants. Furrow planting with 130,000 plant density, produced the highest fodder yield by mean of 56.33 t/ha.
