Off color and silly question


Recommended Posts

Getting ready to double crop some soybeans with my 750 drill.  Thinking of locking up the front gang and go to 15" rows.  If I plant 90Lbs/Ac with 7-1/2" rows, do I double the setting to 180Lbs/Ac with 15" rows since half of the drill is blocked off?

Late season you want the narrowest rows possible so there are more plants getting the ever shortening daylight. 90# seems excessive even late planted for me was never past 70# per acee it’s all about seeds per acre.

Yes your thought process is correct for using 1/2 the rows and keeping planted seed rate the same. No comment on what row width or seed/plants per acre.

I guess I need a handful of soybeans to plant. As far as I know nobody grows soybeans in Calif. But other beans like pinto, pinks, and garbanzo where grown back 50 years ago.

It would depend on seeds per pound.

At least he's got a thought process. Mine usually entails throwing everything in a jar, shaking it up and seeing what rolls out, thats if it's working at all, most always it's what they said about my thought process in school "absent".
