Lodging in corn (Zea mays L.) is often the result of wind-induced motion, which creates a strain on the stalk and root system. In elastic theory, motion is defined by static characteristics (stiffness) and dynamic characteristics (damping coefficient [ζ] and natural frequency [f n ]). A study wxas conducted to determine the relationship of plant ζ, f n , and stiffness (K) to total plant motion in the wind. The ζ,f n , and k were calcualted from stalk motion measured on 23 plants in the field… CONTINUE READING
