Wheat Pete’s Word, Feb 12: Frost seeding cereals, row-width trade-offs, and #plant20 begins

Wide vs. narrow rows — which is best for top yields? As always, it depends.

It depends on the crop you’re growing, your climate, and the architecture of the variety or hybrid you choose. There are other factors too, as discussed in this episode of Wheat Pete’s Word, with host Peter Johnson. Available equipment, what else you’re trying to plant at the same time, tire tracks, and more all influence what row-width spacing will be ideal. Also in this episode: frost seeding forays and dinner theatre prep!
