Here are some seeding pictures from last spring. The crop is soybeans.

Please visit my website for more pictures www.delhotalfarms.com


























Trilex coated beans instead of Cruiser, it smells much better Laughing











I'm glad I don't have to run that one anymore!









We still keep a disk around the close gullies


Lookie what I found!





Autosteer straight!



Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks

I would love to have a seeder like that for planting beans, I like your seed tender too, we have to use buckets when we get seed in those. Wink I also love to see you have the exact same Trimble we have. Laughing

Thanks for the comment!

Golden Harvest bought us the seed tender since we are one of their larger customers. We actually have three Trimble systems, they make some good stuff.

We love our Trimble Very Happy We plant about 2000-3000 acres a year, mostly all custom, so I'm really glad we have it. Lucky we don't have to deal with those stinking crates all the time but we have had to before.

I also like your planting monitor, a lot better than our old light indicator lol

Do you have the autosteer too or just the display?

The planter monitor is nice but sometimes if you get a dirty sensor it goes crazy Laughing

Oh yes, we have the autosteer Very Happy Our monitor is the original that came with the planter, which was made in the early 90s, so there are usually at least 2 out of the 12 lights/sensors that don't work. We re-wired the whole sensor system last year and it worked a little better, but we had to clean the sensors a lot when planting soybeans (cuz of the sticky crap we have to spray on the seeds) and corn (cuz of all the treatment that's on the seed) and with milo they are useless because of the size of the seeds.

I know what you mean, I don't like those monitors. We just got rid of our last set of monitors like that last year and bought a very nice one from Sensor1.com Our planter monitor for the big planter is smilier to the one for the airseeder.

I would like to get a new monitor, but I think we are going to get a variable rate instead. Very Happy

Variable rate will have a much faster payback anyway Cool We have not stepped into VRA with the seed but we use it on fertilizer when broadcasting and now with strip-till. Or I guess I should say we can do it with strip-till, we never got to strip-till last fall Embarassed

We usually have to change rates or seed out almost every field anyway, so it will make us much faster as well. Cool
