Soybean row spacing preference

Soybean row spacing preference

An agronomist prefers 15-inch row spacing when planting soybeans.

Cody Pettit with Pioneer says he believes farmers can optimize yield with both 15 and 30-inch rows.

“A lot of things go into factor between 15 and 30-inch rows, and how I categorize those is weed pressure, disease pressure, so your pest pressure overall. And another thing I like to consider too is early planting.”

He tells Brownfield 15-inch rows can simplify replant decisions.
