Hello members, here are some figures that will help you out.
Rows are spaced at 5 feet.
Interplant distance is 30 inches.
So, a 5ft by 20ft space will hold 40 Okra bushes.
(100 square feet)
Multiply the lenght of your field by 12.
That gives you how many inches in 1 row.
Divide that by 30, which is your plant spacing, and you get how many plants per row.
240 ÷30 = 8 (plants per row)
Now you have 5 staight rows with 8 plants in each.
Thats 40 bushes per 100 square feet.
This is the spacing for maximum yield.
