Tuber and Stalk Yield of Jerusalem Artichoke Clones as Affected by Planting Density

R. Rossini, M.E. Provenzano & R. Ruggeri
Jerusalem artichoke, Helianthus tuberosus L. (Ht), has the full set of attributes that make it an important dedicated bioenergy crop. Ht crop offers several management advantages and environmental sustainability services. Despite the crop is widely cultivated and known, the large genetic variability of Ht clones and genotypes makes difficult to define the crop responses under different cropping systems and growing areas. Particularly, the further investigation of specific agronomical aspects such as planting density is required,...
