Last fall I bought a Massey Ferguson model 39 two row planter from a person who used it to plant sweet corn. I'd like to use it this year to plant field corn in a food plot. The plates which are installed are #442 996 M2. I have a M39 manual but it does not reference these plates. Does anyone have a reference to them? I took the number and some samples of the seed that was in the planter to my local seed source and they are going to try to ID the plates and spec the correct seed. "Farms with Junk" gave me a source for new plates but I don't know which of those plates would be for field corn.
Thanks for your input.
