About Seeds

You can find the Seeds list by clicking on the More... menu at the top of the screen and then clicking Seeds. 

Seeds is a list of each variety found in your planting schedule along with calculators to determine actual seed needs. 

As you enter a crop plan the Seeds list will start populating with varieties that you add to each planting and the number of seeds needed to execute your crop plan.  

This list is fully sortable and includes custom filters and quick access to Totals by clicking on the Calculator icon.

How to calculate Seed Weights and Organize your Seed Order:

  1. Click on a variety name to enter  'Seeds per lb'.  This can also be accessed by clicking the 'View Varieties' button and navigating to the Variety you would like to edit.  'Seeds per pound' info is easily found in any online seed catalogue. 
  2. If desired add a 'Safety Factor' by clicking on the pencil icon on the far right of that variety. The safety factor will increase the number of seeds needed by the given percentage.
  3. By clicking on the pencil icon you can also enter each Variety's source, item number, format, quantity and price.
