Best Answer

Use a seeding rate of 15 to 20 pounds per acre and a planting depth of zero to one and a half inches, increasing the pounds will not increase the amount of crop.

How many pounds of seed are needed to plant one acre of cropland?

One first needs to know what crop is to be planted, since the amount of seed needed varies so widely. If one is planting beans, you might need as much as 50 pounds of seed per acre. If, on the other hand, you want to plant oregano, you will need only about 4 ounces of seed per acre. Normally, a producer will decide how many acres of a crop he wishes to produce, multiply times number of plants per acre he wishes to have, factor by the seed germination percentage, then divide by the typical number of seeds per pound for that species, allowing for a small percentage extra for safety.

Why is hay important to Montana?

Alfalfa is the most important forage crop in Montana. It is grown in every county in the state and nearly all the hay is consumed by the livestock within the state. Alfalfa hay can have a protein level as high as 22% or more and as little as 10% or less depending on when harvest occurs and weather damage. The crop can produce four to seven tons per acre for a value of up to $560 dollars per acre. Alfalfa can be damaged by diseases, insects, grazing animals, and by harvesting too late in the growing season. Alfalfa is a very expensive crop to establish so landowners need to take care of their stands. Dairy cattle tend to require high amounts of high quality alfalfa while beef cattle utilize lower quality alfalfa. Most beef producers tend to seed some grass with their alfalfa while dairy producers demand a pure alfalfa crop that is cut early to maximize the protein content of the hay. The addition of grass to the seed mix is preferred by beef cattle owners and horse owners.
