Crop growth rate (CGR) and net assimilatory rate (NAR) was also higher with same level of nitrogen application (Table 1).
Different tillage practices used had significant effect on leaf area index (LAI) and crop growth rate (CGR) of wheat during the whole growth period (Fig.
Figure-2 (d), (e) and (f) showed similar trend related to crop growth rate as was observed for leaf area index.
The net assimilation and relative growth rates were fit to models of the negative asymptotic type, while the crop growth rate was fit to a positive quadratic model; this latter growth rate was the only index that demonstrated a direct relationship with the concentrations of K evaluated for this final stage of a hydroponic tomato crop.
It seems like that in this experiment nitrogen has affected the number of grains per corn by increasing crop growth rate.
The relationship of LAI with crop growth rate (CGR) and leaf area duration (LAD) was found to be highly significant.

Foliar spray of MLE only at the start of blooming in Bt cultivar attained maximum crop growth rate between 101-130 days after sowing at both locations.
Crop growth rate showed increasing trend upto 60 DAS and declined thereafter till harvest depicted in Fig.
Irrigation enhances the total dry matter (TDM) and mean crop growth rate (CGR) over the non-irrigated crops.
Moazen Ghamsari et al [14] showed that the usage of superabsorbent polymer could increase yield, dry matter, height, relative growth rate, crop growth rate and leaf area index of forage corn.
Increase in fodder yield was mainly due to increased crop growth rate, leaf area index, net assimilation rate, plant height, leaves per plant and stem diameter.
