The mini corn is a product of maize (Zeamays), this cultivation practice is still growing in Brazil, but can be very profitable. The objective of the present work was to evaluate the ideal population density for the total production without straw per hectare of the mini corn in Itumbiara -GO. The experimental design was (DBC), being four replications and five treatments, with different stands: Treatment 1 -60,000 plants / hectare, control; Treatment 2 -120,000 plants / hectare; Treatment 3 -180,000 plants / hectare; Treatment 4 -240,000 plants / hectare; Treatment 5 -300,000 plants / hectare. It is concluded that the population stand of 300 thousand plants / hectare of the hybrid MG711 was superior in production in the municipality of Itumbiara-GO.
