Planting Corn in 60-in. Row-Widths for Interseeding Cover Crops

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

A few dedicated cover crop farmers are planting corn at wider row spacing – 60 inch rows – to allow them to get cover crops established early, at V4 – V6 stage of corn development. This video shows results of a Practical Farmers of Iowa Cooperators’ Program research trial on how planting corn at wider row widths to interseed cover crops affects yield. PFI members Jack Boyer and Fred Abels and PFI research and field crops director Stefan Gailans are featured in the video.
