fergienewbee, Both! "Is and Has and Can be done that way. With a Planter single and double row.
a drill can be done Solid stand or block off the not needed drill cups and plant double or triple row. when planting on Lister Ridges.....the position is more like 10:00 & 12:00 & 2:00 o'clock positions for triple row, Omit 12:00 for double row!
You will need to calculate and adjust off of a "solid stand setting" to compensate for the seed cups that are Blocked off. or work off a single row planter setting to get there.........
If your Grain Drill will straddle 4, 40 in rows,
5 rows, 40 in spacing, 1/2 mile long is 1 acre!
Figure seed count single row setting!, convert to lbs/acre ./. by # of seed cups open ie 8 or 12 should = a #, adjust drill setting close to that #.
Double check me I may very well be wrong here but it will be something on this order Here it has been close to 30 yrs since I calculated one.
Hope this helps.
Later, John A.
