    Hi Darren,
    Just read most of your exploits with the 1240 sowing canola in 2012. We just started using a 1230 today in canola and have been happy with the initial result but are not getting the sensors to "see" the canola as it goes past. Yet when we dig it seems to be where we want it spacing wise.
    Admittedly we only sow at half the rate you do because currently we are probably the northern most canola grower in Australia!
    Did you have accustat sensors or are they std Case seed tubes?
    Any information you can share would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Les,

    we use totally tubular and pattison for the fertilizer parts.
    i used alpine fertilizer but will try 10-34.
    i am happy with the job it does just wish it was abit more robust.
    that is comparing it to a hoe drill. lol

    Im thinking of buying a case 1240 planter for soybeans and canola. What do you use to get phos with the seed? Are you happy with this unit? Thanks
