Abstract
In the past several experiments investigating the effects of planting maize at different dates have been undertaken at Ilonga. Almost invariably it has been found that late sown maize gives much poorer results than earlier planted material. After a certain date, usually about one or two months after the start of the rains, each successive delay in the sowing date results in further reduction of the yield.
