Growing Squash

Growing squash on a farm with Crop Circles out produces field squash at least two to one

Farm Squash

Traditionally, farm squash are planted in rows 6 feet apart, with plants spaced about 2 feet apart in rows. However, many growers use a 6-foot by 6-foot spacing to allow for cross-cultivation. There are limited options for chemical applications to address damage caused by plant infections and insects so yields are low per acre.

Crop Circle Squash

Crop Circle squash out produces field squash at least 2 to one per square foot due to targeted watering from the center of the circle. Proper fertilization combined with targeted watering grows healthy plants; so much so that there is little need for protection from disease and insects. Fruit grows larger and are more abundant. Our farm Crop Circle plastic barrier eliminates 99% of the weeding and inhibits evaporation, which saves water over the course of the season. Plants are trench grown and watered; the preferred method for growing squash.
