Agricultural output – also ‘crop yield’ – measures quantity of harvest per unit of cultivated land.

I am going to delve into the literature on “maximising crop yield”, focusing on home gardens (small land, unsophisticated technology).

Here is one tip:

“Avoid planting in square patterns or rows.

Instead, stagger the plants by planting in triangles.

By doing so, you can fit 10 to 14 percent more plants in each bed.”
