Crop spacing affects more than yield
publication date: Sep 1, 2010
As I plant out the final crops of the year, I’ve been thinking a lot about crop spacing. In particular, I’m considering changing my 8” x 12” lettuce spacing, to 8” x 6” to get twice the plants into a bed, and to try to reduce the size of some of the huge heads we’ve been harvesting lately. I’m always playing with spacings and, with the planning season just around the corner, I’m starting to think about changes for the next planting season.
