photo of SBR-R5 and SBR-R1 test plots in September 2008

In the photo above we can see that, by early September, the SBR-R5 (on left) and SBR-R1 (on right) plots have been completely defoliated.

This photo is looking within a SBR-R5 plot where there is a heavier and more uniform seed load than in the SBR-R1 plot (see below).

photo of SBR-R1 plot

This photo is looking within a SBR-R1 plot, where the defoliation early in the seed-filling period had a detrimental effect on seed growth.
