I just bought a JD 71 Flex Planter and it came with one red plate that is 24 cells and has the number "H 2712 B" on it. I am going to use this for sweet corn and the seed company says to use a JD B6-16 or B6-24 plate which I see from Lincoln Ag. What seed plate do I have and will it work? Thanks

Your H 2712 B (Large Round Pointed Corn) cell size is 40/22/20 (40/64" long, 22/64" wide and 20/64" deep). This is comparable to the Lincoln Ag B0-16, BO-24.
The B6 cell is 32/11/20 which is comparable to the JD H 697 B (Extra Small Corn).

The H2712B is for "large round pointed corn" according to the Deere seed plate catalog. The B6 from Lincoln Ag Products would be the same as a H697B (16-cell) or B30070 (24-cell) and is designed for "extra small corn". So, the plate you have and the one the seed company is telling you to use are very different. Your 2712 plate would probably drop three or four kernels instead of just one.
