Abstract

Planting soybeans in rows narrower than 30 inches can improve yield potential. Most Midwest research documents that narrow rows (less than 30 inches) yield greater than wide rows (30 inches or greater). On average in Iowa a 4.5 bu./acre yield increase can be expected using 15-inch row spacing, compared to 30-inch row spacing. These data have been fairly consistent for the past 20 years.
