Soybean Planting Rate and Row Spacing Publication (06/25/20)

North Dakota State University has a long tradition of recommending the establishment of a soybean population of 150,000 plants per acre across row spacings.

North Dakota State University has a long tradition of recommending the establishment of a soybean population of 150,000 plants per acre across row spacings. This recommendation continues to exist across the state to optimize soybean seed yield. NDSU has conducted numerous field trials during recent years to examine the impact of planting rates and row spacings on soybean production. With the large amount of data available from across the state, the opportunity exists to re-evaluate the current recommendation and provide a more precise soybean planting rate and row spacing recommendations. A new publication “Soybean Response to Planting Rates and Row Spacings in North Dakota (A1961) was just published this month, and summarizes the evaluation of data generated by NDSU soybean planting rate and row spacing trials conducted during 2008 through 2019 in North Dakota. The information can be found at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/publications/crops/soybean-response-to-planting-rates-and-row-spacings-in-north-dakota.
