Anyone in 22 inch rows? If so, do you go off seed company recommended planting populations?

Trying to figure out what to plant corn at in 2022 in 22 inch rows. Do I go off what company recommends for planting population per genetic? Always seem to ask dealers, but some aren't sure of answers as 22's are not super popular in my area. Trying several new genetics all similar population recommendations for where I wanna be. All are semi flex as well.

A 22” row has 27% less space between rows compared with a 30” row. I am stating the obvious; but your spacing between each plant will also b...
