    No-Till Air Seeder

    I would be interested in some opinions on what a preffered configuration on a JD 1890 would be. I am planning on using it to drill wheat into fallow corn and milo stalks in a dryland environment.

    seed/fertilizer cart trailing the tool bar--you can drag a plugged
    opener a long ways before you turn around or the seed monitor goes
    off....visual is still important.

    now I suppose you mean for the fertilizer placement, etc.

    I like the plastic gauge wheel rims over the metal rims. The metal rims wear out faster around the bearing hole than the nylon/plastic rims. Are you buying new or used?

    08: First don't plant wheat. That is DSI. Plant it to
    SB next spring and grow your own nitrogen. Put it on
    a SB-C rotation or continuous corn. Come up and I will
    show you 6 year continuous dryland corn that will make
    120bu/a this year. Beats the he!! out of dog shxt wheat.

    Wheat does not like a disk drill. Find a JD775 hoe drill
    with coulters on the front. It's an airseeder with fold
    up wings and two tanks=seed+fertilizer right on the frame
    with no damn cart. If you want to see one, come up and
    I will show you a nice set up. My Lessee is using one
    of my buddy's so you can see it in operation in about a
    week if you desire. You can come up and see it tomorrow.

    I have another buddy with an 1890 and 1910 aircart. It's
    10" with fertilizer coulters in front so you can put
    fertilizer between the rows...straight 46-0-0 OR 46-0-0+
    11-52. I will e-mail you his phone number, and you can
    call him, and he can answer all your questions. If you're
    not fertilizing, you can rotate those coulters up out of
    the way. You can come up and see this rig in operation
    in about a week. He's been running a 1890 for a long
    time. You can come up and see it tomorrow.

    BTW, I think you said fallow??? I have a buddy who chemfallows
    his cornstalks back to wheat. He has 775 and 1890, but he
    had a bunch of volunteer RR corn out there. He put anhydrous
    tanks right on a sweep and fertilized with no nurse tank
    tracks with the sweep killing the volunteer RR corn after
    he chemfallowed all summer. Looks nice. I can show you that
    too.

    The point is that if you did this you could use a regular
    drill. Best.

    48: the ground I purchased has had the shixt tilled out of it. I am planting wheat to build some residue. The drill I am looking at renting is a 60' flexicoil hoe drill. I am wanting to go into a continuous no-till rotation; wheat, wheat, corn and then to a corn wheat rotation. I don't think I can use soys in the program due to elevation and ph. I really need to come up there for a recon mission. Your area of the desert is more progressive than mine.

    08: You're welcome anytime. I'm going to be busy tomorrow=
    Sat. If you could come up Sun so that we could do it before
    the race at 7PM, that would be great. I'm shipping these
    steers out Mon, so that won't work. After that any day.
    Call or e-mail me. Best.

    08: We should be done by then. If you don't mind waiting a
    little while if we're not, that will be fine. The feedlot
    that they're going to is my buddy with the 1890. lol.
    So, you will be following the steers right over there to
    see the 1890 and pick his brains. lol.

    08: BTW, you know we will have to do a 30pack corn tour. lol.
    Will show you the 775 and the swept/fertilized chemfallow
    too. Then, you can tell these guys on here who are complaining
    about 33D49 what you saw. lol.
