It has long been known that female asparagus plants have a higher mortality rate than males. Several explanations have been postulated, among them, competition by males which are more vigorous. Row maps were made in fields ranging from 1 to 19 years old and the distribution and location of males and females in the rows were analyzed. Statistical analysis indicated that the higher mortality rate of females could not be attributed to competition of adjacent males.
