Row planting is used in traditional farming. Crops are planted in lines in one direction instead of planting without any distinct arrangement. This type of planting is used for both planting seeds and transplanting crops. Planting in multiple rows of lines, shown in the figure below, maximizes crop yields and is convenient.
When planting multiple crops, strips of 2 or more rows of the same crop are planted by each other. The blocks of crops are separated by a small space. Planting blocks close together works well in vegetable production. Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, strawberries, and sweet melons are several common fruits and vegetables that grow successfully in greenhouses (1).
There are two methods to plant crops: seeding and transplantation. Direct seeding involves preparing the ground and planting seeds in the ground. This is used for large-seeded vegetables and grain legumes. Handfuls of small seeds, like rice, can be spread with hands across prepared ground. The plant-to-plant spacing does not need to be monitored for this type of seed because of the plant’s capability to start and sustain growth.Another method to plant seeds involves digging a small hole in the ground, called a hill. Seeds are dropped into the hill uniformly. Transplanting involves replanting a plant that has grown for sometime. This is used for small-seeded vegetables, fruit trees, and perennial crops (1).
