A row cropping system with an increase of row distance to 24 cm increased the growth of undersown cover crops and allowed 1-2 passes of interow hoeing for weed control before sowing cover crops. The three-week delay sowing time was suitable for the growth of legume species. The new system significantly improved both grain yield and grain N content of the succeeding crop compared to the traditional cropping system.
