2/6/17Seed Sizing GuideProper plate sizing to the specific seed you are planting is critical in achieving consistentplanting rates for high crop yields. Seed can be very expensive so it is critical to use the propersized plate to minimize seed waste and maximize crop yield. The following is a general guidefor matching your seed to the proper sized plate. This information is for sizing seed to the JohnDeere and International Harvester style plates.You can always send us a small sample of seed, just 10-20, for sizing. If you do sendseed for sizing always wrap them up so they do not get crushed by the postage machines. Thebubble wrap envelopes work very well. And always include your contact information as well aswhat type of planter you have. We typically call you with a plate recommendation the same daywe receive the seed.Once you have selected the proper sized plate it is always wise to do a couple rotationswith the planter above ground on a flat surface, like a road, to make sure everything is workingcorrectly before going into the field. This would also be a good time to make any adjustments tothe spacing with the sprockets.

2/6/17General Sizing Guidelines:·Always size the plate to the largest seed in your sample. Otherwise the larger seeds willplug the cells and you will get skips. If the seed varies greatly in size, you may get somedoubles of the smaller seed depending upon how well the seed is graded in size.·It is recommended to have at least 1/64” of clearance between all sides of the seed andthe cell of the plate. You do not want a lot of additional space where a second seed couldfit within the cell.·It is generally preferred to have 1 seed per cell or drop, however for some crops likesoybeans, it is preferred to have multiple seeds per cell or drop for population purposes.·Some plates are thinner than a standard corn or soybean plate, such as our Sunflower andSorghum plates. Because they are thinner they require a specific filler ring so they fittight in the planter bottom.·All filler rings are of a specific thickness to work with an individual plate. It is criticalyou use the correct filler ring for the specific plate you are using.·Older more worn out plates will plant at a different rate than a new plate. Always ensurethe plates you are using are of equal wear to achieve consistent planting rates amongdifferent rows.·Most all corn plates have a wear gauge built in. There is little hole located on the bottomof the plate. When the top of the plate becomes worn down over time from the seedrubbing on it the hole will eventually become visible from the top indicating it is time toreplace the plates.·Some planter bottoms where the plate goes can become very worn over time. Thiscreates additional space between the plate and the planter bottom where some smallerseed can get resulting in varying spacing and planting rates.

2/6/17Corn:·There are different plates specifically for round or flat corn seed.·Round corn plates have a round or tear drop shaped cell, whereas flat corn plates have arectangular shaped cell.·Most all seed is labeled round or flat seed. Sometimes there is even a specific platerecommendation on the bag of corn seed, although this seems to be less common thesedays.·Typically corn seed that does carry a specific plate recommendation is graded moreconsistent in size for use with gravity fed plate style planters.Round Corn Seed:·For sizing round corn seed there are really only 2 critical dimensions. The length of theseed and the width at the widest point.·You want to compare the length and width of the largest seed in your sample to thelength and depth of the cell on the plate.·You are looking for a plate with a slightly longer length and deeper depth than your seed.Flat Corn Seed:·For sizing flat corn seed there are 3 critical dimensions. The length, depth and thicknessof the seed.·The length of the seed will be the largest of the 3 dimensions, being measured from thetip of the seed to the other end.·The thickness of the seed is typically the middle of the 3 dimension, being less than thelength and greater than the depth. It is measured by lying the seed flat on a surface andmeasuring how wide it is at the largest point.·The depth of the seed is always the least of the 3 dimensions. The depth is measured byplacing the seed flat on a surface and measuring how far up from the surface the skinnyside of the seed is while lying flat.·The depth of the seed is most critical to get the correct sized plate.·You are looking for a plate with a cell having a depth of about 1/64” larger than the depthof your seed.

2/6/17·The flat corn seed will ride up on the skinny edge when it fits within the cell of the plate.·After finding a plate with the correct depth of cell for your seed, compare the length andthickness of the seed to make sure they fit within the cell on the plate as well.·Most all corn plates are 20/64” thick. Because of this, the thickness of the plate or seed isthe least critical dimension to get the correct sized plate.o Some smaller flat corn plates will have a thickness less than 20/64” of an inch.·If you have a flat corn seed of a width greater than 20/64” you may need to flip over thefloor plate that hinges closed on the planter bottom holding the plate in.o There is usually a flat side and a grooved side to the floor plate that closes shut.o The grooved side will help accommodate seed of a width larger than 20/64”.Sorghum:·There are both single drop and multiple drop plates for sorghum seed.Single Drop Sorghum Plates:·Single drop plates only allow 1 seed per cell and are thinner than multiple drop plates or astandard corn plate so they require a filler ring to fit tight in the planter bottom.·Single drop plates are preferred whenever harvesting sorghum as they will producestronger plants and higher yields.·There are both 30 or 60 cell versions of most single drop sorghum plates.o The 60 cell plates will plant anywhere from 2-8lbs per acre with 36” rowsdepending upon your sprocket settings.o The 30 cell plates will plant half that.·Most sorghum seed ranges in size from 10,000 to 20,000 seeds per pound.o The lower the number of seeds per pound the larger the size of the seed.·There are different sized single drop sorghum plates depending upon the size of seed.·The number of seeds per pound will correspond to one of the specific sized single dropsorghum plates. Please refer to the product information packet or the individual sorghumplate descriptions on our website for reference.

2/6/17Multiple Drop Sorghum Plates:·Multiple drop plates will allow multiple seeds on top of one another within the cells.·Multiple drop plates will work with all sizes of sorghum seed.·Multiple drop plates are sometimes preferred when planting for wildlife as you do notneed a filler ring.o Keep in mind you will use significantly more seed per acre, sometimes even fourtimes that of a single drop plate.·Multiple drop plates also produce smaller plants as they are planted denser than a singledrop plate, effectively reducing the amount of water each plant receives.·There are 2 multiple drop sorghum plates for John Deere planters, the B-Sorg 1 and BSorg 2o The B-Sorg 1 will plant anywhere from 4-17lbs. per acre depending upon yoursprocket settings*o The B-Sorg 2 will plant anywhere from 5-23lbs. per acre depending upon yoursprocket settings*·There is just 1 multipole drop sorghum plate for IHC planters, the C-Sorg.o The C-Sorg will plant anywhere from 4-16lbs. per acre depending upon yoursprocket settings**Assuming 36” rows and seed sized at 14,000 seeds per pound.Sunflower:·Sunflower plates are thinner than a typical corn plate so they require a specific thicknessfiller ring to fit tight in the planter bottom.·Sunflower seed is typically labeled with a size, #2 through #20.o If the seed is not labeled most seed dealers can get you this information.o If it came from a smaller bag without a label most always the larger bag it camefrom is labeled with a size.·Please refer to the product information packet or the specific plate descriptions on ourwebsite for which sunflower plates correspond to what seed size.

2/6/17Soybean:·Soybeans are typically planted with a multiple drop plate to achieve preferredpopulations.·There are 3 different sized soybean plates for JD planters.o B-Soy is the largest soybean plate.§Planting rates of 30-133lbs. per acre* depending upon sprocket settings.§Averages 7.8 beans per cell*o B-Soy 2 is the medium sized soybean plate, by far the most popular plate forsoybeans.§Spaces the beans down the row much better than the larger B-Soy plate.§Planting rates of 24-98lbs. per acre* depending upon sprocket settings.§Averages about 5.5 beans per cell*.o B-Soy 3X is the smallest soybean plate.§Has a very small cell and is not recommended for larger soybean seeds asthey will plug and you will get skips.§Planting rates of 18-76lbs. per acre* depending upon sprocket settings.§Averages about 3 beans per cell*.*Based on a seed size of 2,700 seed per lb. and 30” row spacing.Sugar Beet:·Sugar Beet plates require a specific sugar beet bottom in the planter.o Different from a standard corn bottom.·A Sugar Beet bottom consists of a specific metal floor plate that hinges shut and works incombination with a metal filler ring with an integral drop tube in combination with aspecific sprocket setup.o All different than what is used on a standard corn bottom.·There are different thickness filler rings that work in combination with the differentthickness sugar beet plates we have.o It is critical to make sure you have the correct combination.

2/6/17o For this information it is always best to consult your owner’s manual.Unfortunately, we do not have this information available as to what plates workwith what filler rings.·If you do not have a specific sugar beet bottom most people will use one of our singledrop sorghum plates in combination with the required plastic filler ring, we sell.·Most people find the single drop sorghum plates work very well for planting sugar beets.·For sizing, simply measure the diameter of the sugar beet seed and make sure it will fitwithin the diameter of the cell and also with reference to the plate thickness as to notcrack the seed.Miscellaneous Vegetable Seed:Disclaimer·Please note, the following plate recommendations are simply based off previouscustomer’s experience and positive feedback.·Seeds do vary in size, even within the same variety, and could always require a differentsized plate than what is recommended.·It is crucial you always test fit your seed within the cell and do a couple rotations with theplanter above ground to make ensure everything is working properly before planting inthe field.Beans (edible):·Large flat corn plates work well with beans.·Measure the length and width of the largest beans in the sample.o Select a plate with a length and depth that will accommodate the largest seed.o The depth of the cell will often times need to be modified and enlarged toaccommodate the entire width of edible beans.·The B11-16, B11-24, B5-16, B5-24X, B13-16 and B13-24 are common plates to use foredible beans.o Sometimes requiring modific
