While the use of single row seeding boots has been popular and well understood among growers, it is unclear what impact paired row seeding has on the timely emergence of crops over a range of soil types and seasons. The aim of this study was to evaluate the emergence of crops using paired and single row seeding across the main soil types in the West Midlands region. This is a two-year project (2018-19) and the results are presented for the 2019 season. A later break to the 2019 season occurred on the 7th June with an average of 19 mm across all sites, with all sites being dry sown prior to this date to either wheat, barley, or lupin.
