The right Canola seed for the right Target Plant Population
Seeding Rate Chart

Not sure what your seeding rate should be? This handy seeding rate chart ought to take care of that.

Seeding Rate Chart Lbs./Acre

Seeding Rate (lbs/acre)= 9.6 x Desired Plant Stand (Plants/FT2) x TSW (grams) / Estimated Survivability

All seeding rates within this chart are displayed as lbs/acre.

TARGET PLANT POPULATION (Plants/FT2) 50% Survivability

TARGET PLANT POPULATION (Plants/FT2) 60% Survivability

TARGET PLANT POPULATION (Plants/FT2) 70% Survivability

TARGET PLANT POPULATION (Plants/FT2) 80% Survivability
