As to the planter and planting beans with it, I have a 7000 with Deere cups and my seed spacing is not great but it is nearly as good as a neighbors who has the Kinze units.

Biggest advantage to singulation units is not having to compensate/check/adjust for various sizes for seeds per pound. Set the population for the year....done deal, no matter what the seeds per pound are. I don't believe the other posters with 150-200 ppa N credit- I've always seen about 80 lbs in common literature.

The 150 to 200 is the accepted number here in WI. PLease feel free to double check that. The 80 lb number would be for alfalfa only allowed one year of growth-the year seeded. A friend of mine has done lots of cover crop work through both public and private sources, and gets 50 to 60 from Red clover following wheat... in only the growing season from July till freeze! And thats been replicated many times.

The newest numbers would indicate 150 lb the 1st year, another 50 the second year following alfalfa sod. Any extra N for corn following alfalfa (70-80% stand) is wasted money.

My experience with old stands of alfalfa is 150-175 bu corn, no N added. (Need to keep the P & K up tho, and my started might have added 10 lbs of N!)

Test strips with NH3 added were no higher in yield.

My soils kinda peaks at 175, highly varriable hills/valleys keep me from ever hitting a good year of weather for _all_ the soil types in a round on my fields. Perhaps if you can regularly top 200bu you'll need extra N, but seems in my clays, the old alfalfa fields add enough N for a typical full corn yield.

Plowdowns, where the alfalfa/clover is a year or less old, don't supply so much.

As always, that is 'here'; different soils, climate, goals can lead to very different needs.
