West Central Iowa
Use the finger pickup meter chart and multiply by 5 for soybeans. 12 fingers in the corn unit times 5 equals 60 cell plate. This is for a Kinze brush meter. Not sure about the JD radial brush meters if that is what you are looking for. These are the instructions that came with the Kinze's back in the early 90's and what we have always followed because it is very consistent in population.

i did this last year, and will plant beans through the 7000 again this year. but i had problems with the charts. i did the x 5 from the corn chart to get soybean and i was seeding way to heavy. for example. we run 30 inch rows and plant around 26000 on corn. x that by 5 and you get 130,000 so when i started beans last year i moved it up aways. seen i was seeding way to heavy. think i wanted around 150,000 i was planted really heavy. so all in all i weighed a bucket of beans and filled the planter so i knew what i had in. then planted eight acres. heres what i come out with was at 22 drive and 22 driven on the planter was around 142,000 to 145,000. also every year and every variety of bean is different shape and seed count. so make sure you double check, cuz seed is way to expensive to be to far off. and i also found a different sheet for the bean meters on the net and it was different than what the corn meter x5 deal if i remember right. ill look for it and post it if i find it.

I run mine on 16 tooth driver and 14 tooth driven to get right at 150,000 if I remember right. It does a good job, I planted all my beans with it last yr and got excellent stands. I used to run a 750 drill and never did like the stand I got, just to inconsistent. The planter does much better in my opinion.

the large teeth and small teeth are well kinda the same. all you do is x2. for example your 11 (old big tooth sproket) would be same as a 22 (new small tooth sprocket) we have some newer sprokets and some older sprokets on our planter. but for some reason i dont find a chart for them sprokets with soybean meter settings. i wrote to JD and they sent me a chart but its for sprokets that we dont have like a 35 and a 20 ect. infact i dont think they had a sproket on there that we have. i am writing them back with what our sprokets are and see what they send back. ill let you know what i find out.
