Seed rate calculator
The seed rate is crucial to achieve a proper and healthy plant population and satisfying yields. You should aim for a plant density of 85,000 to 95,000 plants per hectare. Given a typical plant establishment around 80% you would be looking for a drilling rate of approximately 120,000 seeds per ha (48,000 per acre).
Use the seed rate calculator below to calculate your individual seed requirements. Please enter your targeted final plant population (‘000 plants / ha), the expected plant establishment (%) , the row spacing (45 / 50 cm) and the planned acreage for an easy and fast calculation of the seed spacing, seed rate and the amount of seed required per ha.
