Planter Adjustments for Soybeans

Seed bags or tags should be reviewed for planting recommendations. Bag weight and seeds per pound are commonly printed on the tag or bag. To obtain the desired planting rate, the manufacturer’s manual for the planter or drill should be referenced for recommended settings and planting . Along with the manufacturer’s manual, the manuals for any added aftermarket parts should also be referenced for planting recommendations. Soybean planting rates should be based on seeds per acre or foot of row rather than pounds per acre.
