Soybean Row-Width and Seeding Date When Using a Roller-Crimper for Cereal Rye Cover Crop

Waiting to plant organic, no-till soybean until terminating cereal rye by roller-crimping delays planting to late May. To try to plant soybeans earlier in roll-crimped cereal rye, Scott Shriver planted soybeans 17, 13 and zero days before roller-crimping and compared yields and stand counts. In a separate trial, Shriver compared soybean yields and stand counts between soybeans drilled in 7.5-in. row-widths and soybeans planted in 30-in. row-widths.
