Penn State University Extension Has Tips to Help Your Planting “Spring” Ahead

Ready for your spring planting? Planting is one of the most critical steps that leads to good yields in the future, and Penn State University Extension has you covered by discussing what factors matter most:

  • Timing: There is an ideal window for planting, but it varies from year to year due to temperature. A good guideline is from April 15 to May 1, if you’re in the southeast, and May 15 to May 25, if you’re more north.
  • Temperature: Be sure to check for five consecutive days of warm weather! You don’t want your new seeds to get cold.
  • Spacing: There is no evidence to suggest spacing has an impact on yields.
