Abstract

Farmers continue to increase corn planting populations in hopes of increasing yields. Planting too high of a population can result in increased barrenness and thus lower yields, but too low of a population also can result in lower yields. As seed prices continue to rise, it is important for farmers to find a population that maximizes both yield and profit.
