Twin-Row has shown positive yield increases
over single row with a wide variety of crops including
corn, soybeans, sorghum and peanuts.
Twin-Row Silage Corn
Twin-Row is an economical solution
for increasing plant populations while still using
conventional harvesting equipment.
• The ability to increase populations –
new hybrids are being developed for high population
and high yield –
by spacing the plants in Twin-Rows
this configuration gives the opportunity
to increase the population without the crowding of plants
in comparison to equal populations in single row.
• Faster Canopy
Quicker canopy helps conserve moisture & control weed pressure
by shading between rows.
• Better root development in corn has shown to improve
plant standability, reduced wind damage and
better yield retention.
Monosem Option for Twin-Row:
Monosem® patented Sync-Row® timing system allows
planter to stagger the seed drop to optimal plant spacing.
This leads to more ear uniformity and higher yields.
The Monosem® Sync-Row® option was used in a 2011
Twin-Row Corn Study :
From the 2011 Twin-Row Learning Center Report:
” Studies with corn have shown Twin-Rows out-yielded
single rows by close to 20 bu./acre, or about 12%.
Properly staggered Twin-Rows have been shown to
yield an extra 2-3%. ”
World Record Soybean Harvest 2007 and 2010
Kip Cullers has used the precision staggered Monosem® Twin-Row
with Sync-Row® in his 2007 & 2010 competition plots
in Southern Missouri.
While Monosem provides a precision system for Twin-Row,
producers should work with their local agronomist on
seed selection & fertility programs to maximize the yield
