Increasing plant populations by reducing the planting distance is a key step to achieving a uniform crop stand and a high yield. On the other hand, when plants are too close to each other this can hamper good crop development. The plants will be thin and will be susceptible to diseases and pests such as the parasitic weed striga. In this video, we will learn about the best planting density for sorghum. We will understand what factors can affect crop establishment, and then see how thinning and transplanting can help to get a uniform crop stand and high yield.
