Seeding Rate/ Varieties/ Row Spacing, High Yield
Hefty H28X8 soybeans were planted at 130K and 160K in strips on May 7, 2018 in 7.5 inch rows.
Decreasing the seeding rate from 160K to 130K increased soybean yield by 2.66 bu/ac. This increase in yield was not significant. A yield change of 36.49 bu/ac would be required for there to be significant differences at the 90% confidence level
