JD 7000 planter

Used the 7000 JD planter I just bought for the first time planting corn. I went by the book in setting the driver and driven sprockets attempting to put out 26000 plant population, ending up with around 35000. Plate size recommended by seed company was used. Any suggestions on things that might be worn I can check before soybean planting. All sprockets, chains, and cutoffs in hopper bottoms seem to be in good working order.

Did you check the tire pressure? A lower tire pressure would increase the population but I don't think it would make that much of a difference.

Besides matching the plate notch numbers you have to be sure to use the plate planter seed chart, not the plateless corn seed chart. The finger unit is only 12 per revolution while other point out plates can be 16 or 24 per revolution.

What plate did you use? did it have 24 or 16 cells? Sounds like you set it up for a 16 cell plate and used a 24. That'll cut it down from 35000 to around 24,000.

I've seen several advertised as plated planters, so don't pay much attention to Ford farmer.

I used a B-2, 24 cell plastic plate recommended by the seed company for a JD plate planter. It didn't show this plate in my manual, I think all the plate numbers in the original manual may be for steel plates only. Not sure how this much population is going to affect my yield, thankfully only got 75 acres. The corn I planted was classified as medium round.

I would be willing to bet money you set it for 16 cell plates. What you need to do is either get a B-2 16 or get the proper settings for a 24 cell. Lincoln ag can help, don't know their web address, but the number is(402)-464-6367

You can also watch ebay, but don't pay over $8 or so per plate, you can get new ones for $11.50 from Lincoln. I saw some sunflower plates go for over $50 for just 2- they were used, and didn't come with the spacer rings you need for the thinner sunflower plates.

Good luck!!

My finger pickup I typically am 2 settings off from the suggested setting to meet my planting goal of 29,000.

I too would think you got the 16 hole settings instead of the 24 hole settings.......

Plant on a gravel drive, count the number of seeds you see in a foot or 2, do the math for your row spacing, & use actual counts to set the planter. The manual is just a rough guide.

The thick plants will want to lodge more easily; 24D, wind, heavy N, or bugs will get the corn to fall over more easily.

On the other hand you want heavy N and good weather with good rain so each plant will make a good ear - lot of potential there.

Could be top yield, or a miserable time harvesting..... Depends on the year. Good luck.

Your planter plates might be worn...they get thinner as they wear. Lincoln Ag plates have a small "wear hole" near the edge and if you can see thru it, the plate is shot. The B2-24 is usually the right plate for med. rounds. If the floor plate is worn, then you need to try the next size smaller cell next year.
Check the floor plate, as they wear they produce a groove where the plate cells pass over; planting a lot of soybeans produces a lot of wear on floor plates as they are more abrasive than corn kernels.
How fast do you drive (be honest now)? If this planter is on 30" rows, and you want 24,000 pop, then 5 mph for plate-type planter is top end for accurate seed drop. Speed kills an accurate plant stand.

You are absolutely right- 7000 came in both plate and plateless type. Very few were plate type, but they were made. Op manual has planting rates for both.

"Plate size recommended by seed company was used." 7000's are plateless; sprockets used, ground speed and worn parts are what affects population. For that much over-population, I would suspect worn seed brushes and possably sticking pick-up fingers (broken finger springs), and maybe too high a ground speed. The finger pick-up units are really quite easy to work on; they come off the planter with the seed box. I've never used mine for soybeans, but I know that the corn meters are swapped out for bean 'cups'. You don't have the bean cups in now, do you?

The JD 7000 came both as plate and plateless.

I think some 7000 planters were ordered as plate planters.
