Hi Christina;
I would think the most sensible and conclusive way of doing this would to 
set up different plots.  On one end of the scale the plot would only 
contain corn.  From there I would plant additional plots and increase the 
ratio of soybeans planted to corn with each plot.  Each plot with soybeans 
can be compared to your control plot (no soybeans). You will have to decide 
what will be used as your growth parameter (yield; height; plant weight, 
etc}. You will be able to plot and reach conclusions to prove or disprove 
your theory..Good Luck and if you should think about it, forward me your 
data when your done.
