appropriate row spacing

Catalogue: GRDC Factsheets
Although row spacing is a relatively simple thing to change, the effect on the whole farm system can be complex and can influence yield, time of sowing, machinery, herbicide, and seed and fertiliser costs, as well as the types of crops sown... Doubling the row spacing from 18 to 36cm resulted in a two per cent loss in yield in barley and a five per cent loss in wheat... Wider row spacing increases the concentration of nutrients per metre of row if the rate per hectare is maintained...

Count the cost of wide rows.. The widespread adoption of minimum and zero tillage farming systems in the north has been a driving force behind the practice of widening row spacings which enable some growers to better handle stubble loads, reduce machinery and planting costs, and maximise soil water infiltration and storage... Although row spacing is relatively simple to change, the effect on the whole farm system can be complex and can influence grain yield, timeliness of sowing, machinery choice, residual herbicide choice, seed and fertiliser costs, weed management, development of herbicide resistance, and the configuration of other crops sown within the farming system...
