Title: Row Width and Planting Rate Effects on Soybean Yields in Northeastern North Dakota
Author: Lukach, J.R.; Hanson, B.K.
Description: In 1988, there was an increasing number of higher yielding, earlier maturing soybean varieties that were being developed which would be better adapted to the shorter growing season of Northeast North Dakota. This would make this crop more attractive to farmers and increase acreage of soybeans sown. Determining the optimum row width and plant densities were perceived as increasing yield. This was an area for research. Information on the effect of planting rates and row widths on soybean yields in northeastern North Dakota at this time were lacking. A study is presented next in this article. The study was conducted to determine if the then current practices involving rw widths and and plating rates were best adapted to the shorter growing season. The net effect of this three year study presented in this article found no significant differences occurred between planting rates. 12 inch row outproduced 24 inch rows.
