Question:  I’m soon to calibrate my Genesis drill with the Green Cover Summer Release.  I was wondering if you could pass on what your Gearbox Setting and Gate Opening were for a starting point for me.  I plan on using the recommended pounds per acre and seed depth for drilling in the Summer release as advertised on the Green Cover website.  Do you think these recommendations need any tweaking?

Answer: I have the older style Genesis that uses gears to set the calibration and it’s an 8′ model.  For that setup we used:

75/45 gear ratio (75 on top) and the gate opening is set to 1.25 and this gives us 38 pounds per acre of the Summer Release blend. It’s always best to check such information to confirm it works for your drill!
