Pulse row spacing and standing stubble locations
Aims

To investigate the effect of row spacing and standing stubble on the grain yield and harvestability of pulse crops.

Key messages
  • Height to lowest pod was greater in wider rows for beans compared to peas or chickpeas.
  • Beans were higher yielding on narrower row spacing.
  • Standing stubble did not increase grain yield in any pulse crop trialled.
  • Standing stubble improved bean yields only at the wide row spacing.
