around 220-230 before this dry spell several 80's averaged a hair over 260.

never tested it down to 32000 15" vs 30"

I was planting around 34500 in 30" rows before so never though about going that low

I did try a strip of 33000 in 15" and compared it to my standard of 37k and was a considerable amount lower.

I have been planting more vertical leaf plants, and stayed away from a full flex

Thats seems like an awful lot of seed costs and increased risk of moisture and competition for available nutrients for not that high of yield. 6-7 bu/k. Not judging, just my experience in Texas has lower pops normally recommended by seed companies for a yield goal than that same company recs for corn up here in dakotas/minn. That same 220-240 bu environment is more like 30-32k range from what I've seen. I would guess those higher pops and reduced nutrient availability is why some guys report standing issues, but that's just a guess.
