Efficiency of regular spacing planting designs

Plantations with regular spacing may be arranged in rectangular, square, superposed squares, or equilateral triangular designs (1). With the square or rectangular patterns, seedlings are set at the four corners and rows cross each other at right angles (figs. 1 and 2). Both patterns have been very popular. The superposed squares design involves planting at the four corners of squares, and at the centers of these squares by a second crew (fig. 3). The same result can be achieved by planting in squares at a spacing equal to the square root of (a squared/2) where a equals the spacing planned for the original squares.
