Alfalfa-red clover stands and growth frequently were poorer in a band at the south side of 80-inch spaced east-west planted corn rows than in the remainder of the interspace between the rows. Stands between north-south corn rows were usually more uniform. The band of poor stand on the south side of east-west rows coincided with a band of soil receiving near full sunlight throughout the day. This resulted in higher soil temperature and frequently lower soil moisture.
