Not easy, but we jack up one wheel, put seed over one or two feed wheels. Measure the circumference of the wheel. Decide how many seeds you want per foot. Turn the wheel 3-4 turns and catch the seed from each feed roll. Devide the counted seeds by the # of feet the wheel would have traveled. Not that difficult, but a little time consuming.

Different seed lots will feed differently, and seed treatments will affect the seed wheel as well
