Thanks to all you guys for your answers. If I understand this right, we will take the lb/acre that Bill gave me and double the sprocket number to get that rate. Just a note, my dad, brother and I used to farm 1100 acres with a JD maximerge until my dad's retirement. Mercury 50 Hp 4 Stroke Manual. Now the boys are farming just the much smalller home farm. They do understand the workings of the planter, seed size and checking by counting how many beans per foot.

13 drive and 14 tooth driven for 57 pounds per acre. 15 drive and 14 driven for 66 pounds per acre.As the other postings have stated. It will vary, If your tires are wore also. In general this year the bean seed is smaller than normal on alot of varieties.I use a grain drill now for my beans.If I ever go back to using the planter I would advice spending the moeny on the meters over the bean cups. I hope this helps Bill from Wisconsin. The early 7000 planters have driver and driven sprockets with exactly half as many teeth per sprocket as the later ones.
Yours sound like the later ones. Early ones have as few as 7 teeth per sprocket. You need the manual to give you the required planting rate that you want. There is no one standard planting rate- the planter gives you many options.
On 30 inch rows, I generally would plant 9-12 seeds per foot. With average size soybeans, that would run about one bushel seed per acre- about 160-170,000 seeds per acre. The best solution is to buy the bean meter, whether it is JD or Kinze.
It singulates seeds, rather than meters them volumetrically like the bean cups. Set it once for seeds per acre, no matter how many bean seeds per pound, and the rate stays the same. You can get the manual through any JD dealer- it is essential to operate the machine! There is no way you can correctly operate any planter without the operator manual!! You get one chance each year to plant a crop, and there is nothing you can do later to make up for planting mistakes, whether it is population rate, planting depth, or anything else. If you need to know sprocket combinations for a certain population, I could look that up, but you need to get a manual to learn how to run and set the machine!
I can't remember which setting I used for the bean cups, nor do I have the book handy. If you do have an Idea of what setting you need, try it. Set one row to plant as shallow as it can and plant 100 feet and count the number of beans dropped. You could use 50' and double till you get close. If your manual is not the right one, you can still use it to guess which gear would be next to try. Check the chart on the back of the bag. It should give you a rate for 30'rows for your desired population, if you're lucky it will also be in seeds per foot.
Don't go only by the rate in the book, different size beans may feed different.
