Abstract

Current row widths employed by producers typically vary from 15 in. to 38 in., with most producers at 30 in. today. Yet more and more acres are being converted to narrower row widths(most often 15 in. or 20 in.). Numerous advantages exist with narrower row widths. These include using the same planting equipment for corn and soybeans, reduced weed competition, increased shading of the soil, increased light interception per plant, and less in-row crowding.
