So the renting a drill days are over! Couldn't get a sunflower or remlinger new drill so i found a used 750 JD.   Actually pretty good shape! Little maintenance and a couple parts and we are good to go!

Nice! It will be a good drill. I borrowed the neighbors 1560 when we first started double cropping beans after wheat and it was a dream. There are two local guys who are die hard red, but they both have Deere drills. everyone around here seems to think they're the best. 

Whats the spacing? In our area all are 7.5" but ive heard out in wheat country they are mainly 10" spacing. If you do have a 7.5" drill it would be neat to do some soybean trials, a few rounds at 7.5, then 15" and then your normal 30".

My dad has one and we like it.

Pierre changed the spacing on it to where he can get two rows of beans in between 30" corn rows. 

He ended up taking half of the row units off to make it work.

I will try some beans with it. It is 7.5 spacing 

 

 

The first thing i thought of is how i could pop units of for corn interseeding.

Great drill, we have been running deere drills for 20 plus years and there isn’t much change from the 750-1560-1590 series. We use to do all the beans at 7.5 but recently had luck locking the front gang up and planting 15” beans. They push out of the ground faster. Just have to remember to spray and harvest at an angle. Still use the front gang for cover crops and hay at 7.5

Had a guy to coventional strips. Liked it but for the non sqaure fields he didnt like it. Maybe today with a 24 row smart planter half beans half corn it would work? He was one of them guys that tries everything but eventually is back to conventional. 

I like the idea of relay and will keep playing with it.  This year the straw will be more cash flow then a relay of soybeans so i am not messing with it this year.
