More site-specific management has been adopted by farmers to increase field productivity and profitability, although successful prediction of input response within management zones remains challenging. For some inputs, like plant density, the maximum yield plant density (MYPD) and the economic optimum plant density (EOPD) changes as new genetics become available. The objective of this research is to determine whether an MYPD and EOPD could be determined for one soil type given that genetics constantly change.
