Subject: RE: How many pounds of Rye?



When are you planning to plant the rye? Low seeding rates result in good cover when planted early (e.g. September).

As shown in the following calculation, 90 lbs of rye/acre is a HIGH seeding rate.

90 lbs of cereal rye per acre * ~18k seeds/lb / 43560 ft2/acre = 37 seeds/ft2

Good cover can be achieved planting 30 lbs of cereal rye/a (~ 12 seeds/ft2) when planted early .

PS As already mentioned, some type of cleaning is probably desirable if your rye seed currently contains much straw or anything else that can plug your planting equipment.
