Bob Recker has spent 14 seasons exploring and researching sunlight harvesting by corn. His work has evolved from strip intercropping to tramlines and 60-inch corn rows to even wider row spacing and configuration, which includes an “Opportunity Space,” or the opening between the wide rows. In this video, he will help you learn how to make wide-row corn work in your operation and what to do with the “Opportunity Space” between the rows.
