Technical Abstract: Brassica carinata, just like any other plants, undergo architectural and structural modifications as a response to the environment and to management interventions. As a new crop recently introduced to the Southeastern United States, it is necessary to find the strategies to improve the expression of yield potential. Since different plant population densities under different tillage systems may affect the physiological behavior of Brassica carinata, a study was conducted to evaluate the effect of tillage systems and plant population density on the physiological trait of Brassica carinata. A randomized complete block design with a strip-plot restriction on randomization with four replications was implemented in Jay FL, during the 2018-19 growing seasons. Preliminary results from this trial will be presented.
