So what if you were on wider spacing and that row where your hose was off hadn’t been tilled up in the first place? Would there be as many weeds growing if it hadn’t been disturbed? Not trying to be a jerk just asking. The more you disturb the soil the more weed seeds will grow.

I can honestly say that I’ve never seen weed issues due to wider spacing drills.
I find my weed growth in flax and peas increases a lot with wider spacing and narrow rows. My barley burns quicker with narrow row and seeding rate needs to be lower. I spent 3 yrs adding twin row dutch low draft openers to my seedmaster drill and with a lot of pictures to help me remember observations, Im happy now with my 12 inch spacing. I live further north than where seedmaster did testing. so different areas and my typical rainfall may dictate results and lead into different positions. Canola is ok and just adapts.
