i have received emails this week on this topic. Every email I get from someone requesting a custom blend contains an improper seeding rate or final stand percentage different than intended. I attached a spreadsheet showing a seeding rate per acre with 3 different grains, chicory, annual clovers and radish. Note how the final stand percentage would be different than % of what would be on the tag.
Very few people ever ask me for a tag, and no one ever asks me for final stand percentage. Many reading this may not care but do this....look at a tag, close your eyes for a moment and visualize how you think that bag of seed you want to buy will look 45-60 days after planting......Is your vision the same as the person who formulated that mix?
