## What is recommended seeding rate?

For conservation purposes, seeding rates have been established to achieve the desired plant density of around 20-60 live seeds per square foot. These figures are fairly standard when figuring seeding rates except when you are dealing with very large or very small seed sizes (e.g. eastern gamagrass vs. bermudagrass).

**How are seed rates calculated?**

Sowing rate (kg/ha) = target plant population (p/m2) x TGW (g) x 100. % germination x % emergence.

**What are seed rates?**

Seed rate may be defined as the amount of seed required for a unit area of land to grow any crop successfully. In other words, the amount of seed required to raise a crop successfully on a given land is called a seed rate for that crop of the land.

### What is the seeding rate for wheat?

Seeding Rate The desired plant population for winter wheat is 1.3 to 1.5 million per acre (28 to 34 plants/sq ft). This requires a seeding rate between 1.5 and 1.7 million seeds per acre or 20–23 seeds per foot in a 7-inch row. Use the lower rates in Area 3 and the higher rates in Areas 1 and 2.

**How deep do you bury a seed?**

The rule of thumb is to plant seeds at a depth equal to two or three times their width. It is better to plant seeds too shallow than too deep.

**How do I calculate how many seeds I need?**

Take the total number of inches available for the crop and divide by the in- row crop spacing. For instance, 120 in. divided by 1 in. per pea seed equals 120 pea seeds.

## What is seed rate per hectare?

Seed Rate: Seed rate is 15-20 kg/ha for kharif and 25-30 kg/ha for spring or rabi. Spacing: Row-to-row distance is 30-35 cm for kharif and 25 cm for rabi or spring.

**How much seed do I need calculator?**

Multiply the seeding rate, in pounds per 1,000 square feet, of the grass species or blend you are using by the total area, in square feet, to determine the total quantity of grass seed you will need.

**How do you calculate seed germination rate?**

Calculating results To calculate germination percentage, divide the number of healthy seedlings by the total number of seeds in the test and multiply by 100. For example, if you started with 25 seeds and had 20 healthy sprouts, your germination rate would be 80%.

### What is seed rate of maize?

1) For winter and spring maize : use seed rate of 8-10 kg/acre. 2) Sweet corn: Use seed rate of 8 kg/acre. 3) Baby corn: 16 kg/acre seed rate. 4) Pop corn: 7 kg/acre seed rate.

**What is planting rate?**

the number of seeds planted per hectare (ha) to ensure normal density of sprouts and a maximum yield. The seeding rate is expressed by the number of germinating seeds (millions) and the weight of the seeds (kg).
