Narrow Vs Wide Soybeans

Narrow Row Soybeans

Wide Row Soybeans
These 2 photos illustrate the advantage of narrow row soybeans.  Fields are across the road from each other.  Both photos are looking down the rows.  Both crops are about the same growth stage.  Since the narrow row beans have a complete canopy, weeds are shaded out.  Ground temperature will be cooler in the narrow rows.  There will be a bit of an advantage in water conservation in the narrow rows.
