    Default JD flex 71 seed plate question

    Hello everyone! I have recently acquired a two row JD mod 71 flex planter. I have never messed with seed plates before. Does any of you know the number of the seed plates I need to purchase to plant Silver King sweet corn, Reids yellow dent and Blue lake bush snap beans? Is it necessary to purhase the edible bean bottom for the hoppers to plant snap beans?

    Get the operator manual for the 71. It has the dimensions of the seed plates. Then measure the dimensions of your seeds and match to the plate.

    Lincoln Ag Products has plates for the 71. And if no standard plate will work for you, Lincoln sells blank plates that you can custom drill for your needs.
