Oilseed Rape Plant Populations

The following pictures are from harvest 2009.

This is a crop that had about 30 to 40 plants and yielded over four tons.

The guy who grew this crop thought he would increase the yield by doubling the seed rate, I kid you not. Double the seed rate, double the yield, right? Wrong knob head, this was over 100 plants per meter and came in at less than one ton.
