Downpressure for corn planting?

What's everyone's goal downpressure in corn? We run heavy black clay. Shoot for 140-180 depending on moisture levels.

Where I farm our soils can change a bunch of times in one field so getting the right downpressure is a tuff thing to do across the whole field. An active downforce system is almost a must if you want to be close. In most active systems you are able to set the margin that you are shooting for. Im guessing that the 140-180 you are referring to is margin but not sure. Margin is the weight that is...

That's some very good information I appreciate that. We don't have active but we are migrating that direction soon I hope.
