• #4 Narrow Row Spacing

Narrow Row and Twin-Row Spacing

MAXIMIZE YOUR FIELD AREA
Narrow rows and twin rows maximize up to 30% more land area, which allows resources, such as sunlight, water, and nutrients, to be used more efficiently. For corn, twin row does not require any specialized harvesting equipment, as it can be picked with a regular 30" corn head.

REDUCED PLANT COMPETITION
Larger stalk diameter, enhanced root development, and higher yields are all results of plants having more space to grow.  By utilizing narrow row or twin-row configurations, plant populations are increased while giving each plant more room to grow.

QUICKER CANOPY
Corn that is planted in narrow or twin rows will reach full canopy closure several days sooner than conventional single 30" or wider row spacing. When full canopy is reached, the ground is completely shaded and protected, reducing weed competition and water evaporation from the soil.
