I am going to plant soybeans with a JD 7100 plate planter and am trying to decide if I should use the 24 cell SOY-2 or the 32 cell SOY-3X plate. Will the 32 cell give me better seed distribution? I used the 24 cell plate last year and it seemed like the seed came out in bunches, dropping 4-5 seeds at a time. The beans seemed to yield OK, but it would be nice to get more uniform spacing of the seeds. New plates are about $15 ea., so I would like to know if the SOY-3X plates will do better before I spend over $100 for the plates & shipping. Thanks.

Is there a certain round corn plate you suggest using? I received a whole box of corn plates with the planter when I bought it and some of them are for rounds. I have a bunch of B0-24. Do you think that one will work ok?

If I remember right I think I used a B-1 plate. I can't remember if a B-0 plate is larger or smaller. All you have to do is drop the plate in your planter box and drop a few seeds in. If you get two seeds per cell it should work just fine. It is almost impossible to get three seeds per cell with most sizes of bean seed when using a round corn plate. Mike

If you have a round corn plate you can use it to plant soybeans successfully. You will drop two seeds per cell instead of one. Set the planter at the appropriate population (times two) and you will get much better singulation than with a regular soybean plate. I have done it and it works very well. Mike
