2007-11-04 Planting Planted Pioneer 25R37 Soft Red Winter Wheat into Biodiversity Study treatments B3, B6, B9, B14, B17, and B20. Planted with JD 5400 tractor and JD 450 drill. Drill setting 41. The drill meter (counter) indicated that 1.8 acres were planted. Eight 50 pound bags were used. When finished 70 pounds of seed was removed from the drill. Seeding rate: 330 pounds of seed used/1.8 acres = 183 lbs seeds/A, each pound of seed contained 10,000 seeds, therefore 183 lbs/A x 10,000 seeds/lbs = 1,833,000 seeds/A.
