Management Effect on Soil Characteristics and Yield in Second Crop Corn Grown in Tokat, Turkey

Engin Ozgoz and Abdullah Kasap

Abstract:
This study was conducted to understand the status of farmers who produce silage corn as second crop in Tokat. Three different farms were selected for the study. Gravimetric water content, bulk density and penetration resistance were determined at three different depths (0-10, 10-20 and 20-30 cm) before and after soil tillage and after harvest. Mean emergence dates, percentage of emerged seedlings, plant height, stem diameter, leaf number, dry matter and silage corn yield were also determined. Bulk density and penetration resistance values measured after tillage and harvest were below the plant growth restriction limit (3 MPa). Mean emergence dates, the percentage of emerged seedlings, plant height, stem diameter, leaf number, dry mater and silage corn yield were ranged between 13.27 to 19.38 day, 59.37 to 79.26%, 133.6 to 276.5 cm, 19.3 to 23.8 mm, 12.3 to 14.3 number per plant, 825.8 to 1015.7 kg da-1 and 6201.3 to 7446.3 kg da-1, respectively.
