Trowyer and Brown (1976)
We observed a cycle-by-density interaction wherein advanced cycles exhibited prolificacy at a low density after selection against barrenness at high densities. The decrease in silk delay and increase in ears per plant indicate that selection for early flowering during stress is effective in adapting materials to high plant densities.
