HOW TO CONVERT SEED AMOUNTS

1M= 1,000 seeds
1 LB= 16 ounces

AT A GLANCE | If you purchase 1M of asparagus seed, you can view in the chart that it is just over 1 oz of seed.
If you purchase 1 LB of bean seed, you can view in the chart that it is about 1,500 - 2,000 seeds.

DO THE MATH

EXAMPLE 1 | M = (LB x SC) / 1,000
Osborne Quality Seeds sells Allure F1 corn by the M and you want to purchase 5 lbs. How many M's do you need?
M = (5 lb x 4,000) / 1,000.
5 x 4,000 = 20,000, then divide by 1,000 = 20. You would need to purchase 20M of Allure F1 corn and that would equal about 5 lbs.

EXAMPLE 2 | LB = (M / SC) x 1,000
Osborne Quality Seeds sells Kiowa F1 spinach by the M, how many pounds will you receive if you order 100M? Fill in the formula with what you know: LB = (100M / 40,000) x 1,000.
100M / 40,000 = 0.0025, then multiply by 1,000 = 2.5 lbs. You would be receiving 2.5 lbs when you order 100M of Kiowa F1 spinach.

*Seed counts may vary per variety and per lot. Please call if you need exact seed count.
