How Many Rows Wide Should You Plant
The wider the benches the greater the productive area but not necessarily is the production per square foot of area increased over narrower benches. During the past year, pompon sprays of the variety Constellation were grown in a 40 inch bench with five rows in the bench. The spacing in the row was 9 inches. The outside rows were pruned to 4 stems per plant and the Inside rows were allowed to develop only 3 stems per plant. The production of a block of four rows across the bench was analyzed. Each spray cut from the plants was weighed and the results tabulated.
