The Price-Size Curve and Planting Density Decisions
The planting density decision is influenced by the price-size relationship existing between the tree crop grown and the products sold. Several price-size curves are presented, and their impact on the optimal economic planting density is evaluated. Results indicate that when the price-size curve is upward sloping, fairly low planting densities may be appropriate. Higher densities apply when the price-size curve is flat. Sensitivity analysis is carried out to evaluate the impact of changing site index and discount rate on the density decision. South. J. Appl. For. 16(1):24-29.
