Your Reading List


In the agricultural world, seeding technology is getting more precise every day.

Calc-Seed is an app that can easily and efficiently help you do precise seed calculation so you know not only how many pounds per acre you need, but also total tons as well.

The interface is clean allowing you to do your calculations in one of four languages and in metric or imperial conversion. You can also calculate in seeds per one ounce or ounces per 1,000 seeds. From there you just enter in your basic information of total area, plants per yard squared, seed units, germination per cent and field loss per cent.

These numbers can either be manually entered through the keypad or by pressing the plus or minus symbols bracketing the numbers.

Calc-Seed is a great little app for determining seed usage and I definitely recommend giving it a try.
