I like 15's because my combine header will ride better between the rows, & knock down less beans. Allows me to concentrate on the header height instead.

my experience; tells me that i always get a stand with a planter. if using a drill; plant early and hope for a rain. FOR SURE, keep a close eye on them in case u need to replant. drilled beans canopy early. i've now started to really watch whether my beans are the bushy type when using a planter. if replanting with a drill; don't tear up the patch; plant right into the field. mother nature will take care in case of being too thick!

I think, from my experience here, the planter is better from a seeding consistency stand point. More consistent depth and seed spacing. That being said, I still use a drill (7.5") to plant beans most of the time because of the spacing in the row for 7.5" vs. 30" at a set population, also narrow rows will canopy over quicker helping the weed situation out a bit.

first to answer Paul's question , definately a Ford! As for bean spacing my experience is that 15 is about as narrow as they need to be, we have planted them in 6,20 and 30 inch rows and the 30's usually do as good as anything,your results may vary also consider second spraying pass, 30's are a little more forgiving

Which is better, Chevy or Ford? :) :) :)

If white mold is a concern (heavy wet soils?) then the 15 inch will be a little better - more air to the stems.

Be a little cheaper buying seed with the 15 inch planter, a planter places the seed out there, while a drill on narrow spacing spills the seed out there. But of course, the planter will likely cost more than a drill....

Lof of folks went back to 30 inch around here after playing with a drill, seem they do well with the 30 inch and have good yields.

I see all three around me - drilled, 15, and 30 inch. I'm not sure there is one right answer.

I'm happy with my 15 inch.

IAGary told me he was having trouble with fungus/disease till he went back to a planter. Not enough air movement around the plants.

That was likely an issue of row spacing, not planter vs drill. White mold in beans is an issue if plant rows are narrow, like with a 7 inch drill. Especially in low ground. Any planter gives more accurate seeding depth, compared to a drill. And wide drills cover more ground faster......... so....
