Well crap Gary, Ya left me out in the cold on that one....the last time I planted ANY field corn was 1976! Medium flats as I recall with a JD 494A...er, nope I planted 30" rows for the first time on 320 rented acres with a borrowed JD 6 row planter. Seems to me it was a plateless planter too, but I remember it left me a few skips due to a problem with the hyd. cyl. linkage on the planter. If you raised it too high a part would flip over and not let the planting mechanisam work. That winter the ground was sold and they started earthwork on a subdivision. Plus the corn/bean prices went through the roof in about "74 and I couldn't see competing with the high rent guys for $2.10/bu corn so I went back to work in the construction business. Larry NEIL

I remember going to two farm sales that winter where they also auctioned the ground for rent. first time I'd seen that, and in both instances the rent went for over $130.00/acre. Too rich for me at the time, but seems pretty cheap right now. Larry NEIL
