Martien 426564 48 Packing Beans either
Packing Beans
~ Here are some pictures of last week. We put in 100 acres of beans. We planted with our Deutz and MF drill. After that I packed it with this combination.

~ Hier zijn wat fotos van vorige week. We hebben 40ha bonen gezaait. We zaaiden met onze Deutz en MF zaaimachine. Daarna heb ik het aan gerold met deze combinatie

Re: Packing Beans
Thats good.

I could see some dust coming up behind the packer, so I thought a shower or rain would be needed ;-)

Re: Packing Beans
What kind of beans did you guys seed, and why do you pack it?

Re: Packing Beans
Maybe they pack to roll stones or clods Rony & to bring moisture to the surface. Thats what pea & green bean growers do here anyway ;-)

Re: Packing Beans
Those are Soybeans. Our drill doesn't have press-wheels so that why we pack them. Sometimes it is better to do the job yourself with maybe less perfect equipment but at the right time!

In this case we planted last Tuesday and Wednesday which was 32 centi degrees, shortly after that it was raining.......

Never the less, we are thinking of another drill or planter next year. Can't decide yet. How do you guys work out west?

Re: Packing Beans
dat is idd jammer Martien. Lijkt me wel een pittig trekker. Lekker overzichterlijker en wendbaar voor te zaaien.

Re: Packing Beans
Tim, ja het is zeker een fijne trekker. We gaan er waarschijnlijk wel stuur bekrachtiging op bouwen want dat is wel wat fijner met veel gewicht voor op. Bedankt voor jullier reacties.

It's going pretty good down here, seeding the pinto beans these days(pic), we're about halfway, 200 acres done, 200 more to go.
Weather is 25-30 this week, had some showers over the weekend, works out pretty good, didn't use the pivots yet this year.

Re: Packing Beans
That is a JD 7000 series planter? with air or not?
The majority here still has a conventional JD planter. Bigger farms have the air-type. Also many White planters.
I am not to sure about the JD7000 planters. Back in Holland we used to have air/vacuum planters for quiet some time. Was a little bit of a shock to see the mechinal types here again. I am impressed by the disk/presswheel design though.

Yes, this is an airdrill, it's a 1730 MaxEmergePlus VacuMeter actually. And it works perfect.

Thanks Rony. Are they canned like navy beans (baked beans) or used in a different way?

Cheers ;-)

They don't taste too bad, mom always makes chili or something with the beans in there.
