Before planting any crops it is important to get a guide on how to space the crop. Some of the reasons for proper spacing include;

It allows plants to develop to their full potential on top and underneath ground.

Adequate space ensures less competition for sunlight, water and fertilizers.

Spacing can also prevent the spread of pests and diseases from one plant to another.
