Quantitative relationships for growth rate and its dependence on plant nitrogen concentration are developed from the results of experiments on potatoes, cereals and vegetables. The relationships appear to be of general applicability and most coefficients in them are similar for widely different crops. It is argued that during the main growing period (May–August inclusive) in Western Europe growth of crop dry matter may be limited by self regulatory mechanisms within the plant and is little… CONTINUE READING
