Guessing Garbanzo beans are another name for chickpeas? My JD planter book does list them under the large edible bean cell and flat disks, seeds/lb. 750 - 900, (or seeds/kg. 1650 - 1980, for those of you using metric.) The manual is for MaxEmerge XP and pro, even though my planter has ME2 units (seems someone must have lost original books...) But I believe all the meters would use the same plates.
Part #'s are H136092 for the large cell and A52878 for large flat disk according to book, might give you some starting point in searches or comparisons for other planter makes.
Never tried it ourselves as chickpeas aren't grown around here, but plenty of soybeans put in with planters. Everyone here has a planter for corn, drills are more of the off items for soybeans and other stuff, not as common. They usually give very good spacing and population control, weed control in wider rows might be more of an issue but not everyone wants to have a drill for the beans when a planter works just fine.
