Weed management considerations can influence the decision about whether corn or soybeans should be planted first.

5, 15, or 30-inch row widths.

5 and 15-inch rows yielded similarly while soybeans grown in 30-inch rows yielded on average 15-20% lower. 5- or 15-inch row spacing.

In Episode 11, we are in the field with Dr.

2 Purdue Extension recommends row spacing between 7.

Alyssa Essman, Ohio State Extension Weeds Specialist, to learn about early season weed management and the effect of planting date. Then a for a couple years I planted some of my soybeans in 30" rows at 140,000. Researchers at Ohio State University recommend increasing seed numbers at the end.

In Ohio, most farmers plant soybean in 7.

. In Ohio, most farmers plant soybean in 7. Both fields contained silt loam and/or silty clay loam soils.

Then a for a couple years I planted some of my soybeans in 30" rows at 140,000.

Row width should be narrow enough for the soybean canopy to close by flowering.

. In our 2016 row width study, soybeans grown in 7.

Surprisingly in 2006, corn yield was not increased in 15-inch rows or paired rows on 30-inch centers over corn grown in single 30-inch rows.
5- or 15-inch row width.

Soybean plants were harvested from a high (left) and low (right) plant population trial area.

.

5 to 15-inch row width). , soybean grown in ≤15 inch row width has a yield advantage. 5- or 15-inch row spacing.

. This is also supported by national research that shows either 7. In Ohio, most farmers plant soybean in 7. Narrow rows tend to out-yield wide rows due to earlier canopy closure which facilitates light interception and drives. . Soybeans grown in narrow rows generally produce more grain because they capture more sunlight energy, which drives photosynthesis.

Planting too early (when conditions are not adequate) comes with risk such as damping-off, bean leaf beetle, and late spring frosts.

In Ohio, most soybeans are planted in row widths 15 inches.

Soybean growth is affected by population.
