Studies regarding intergenotypic competition in cultivated crops are of interest for both scientific and practical reasons. The response patterns of seed yield in intergenotypic crop mixtures can be categorized into three types: neutral, overcompensatory, and undercompensatory. Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the response of yield and yield components of dry edible bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) bi-blends (two-component blends) across five mixture ratios. Mixtures ratios for the… Expand

Enhancing In-crop Diversity in Common Bean by Planting Cultivar Mixtures and Its Effect on Productivity
Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is the most important food legume crop worldwide. Canadian beans, especially large seeded cultivars of Andean origin, have relatively narrow genetic diversities.Expand
Seed yield and stability of bean multiline
The results demonstrated advantages of multilines while no disadvantages were found, and indicate release ofMultilines is a potentially useful strategy, especially if multiline quality can be further improved by testing for compatibility of components. Expand


Cultivar mixtures: a means of exploiting morpho-developmental differences among cultivated groundnuts
Investigation of cultivar mixtures in groundnuts should focus on stability rather than maximization of yield since no mixture yield surpassed that of the highest-yielding variety. Expand
Effect of Row Spacing and Genotypic Frequency on the Yield of Soybean Blends1
Although row spacing generally did not influence compensatory responses, there were blends that had significant deviations from the expected yield in one spacing but not in the other, and the percentage yield differences in two row spacings could not be consistently estimated from the percentage row-spacing response of its component cultivars.

Effect of different inter-row spacings on faba beans of different form
Abstract Plants with different morphologies may exploit the space available to them more or less effectively. Differences in inter-plant competition were examined in a field trial with determinateExpand
Intra‐varietal Diversification in Oat Breeding1
General agreement is found on several elements which together may be summed into the one word diversification that the production and distribution of new pure line varieties alone may not be a sufficient measure to provide the desired stability in oat production. Expand
