* Based on recommended full seeding rate of 20 PLS per square foot. ** Percent purity and germination are shown as minimum standards for good quality seed; use actual purity and germination of seed lot to calculate bulk pounds. *** Conversion factor, Table 3 (Conversion factors to determine pounds of bulk seed needed for 1 pound of pure live seed). **** Optimum lb/acre PLS x Percent of full seeding = Amount of PLS. ***** Amount of PLS x Seed quality factor = Bulk seed.
