One of a grower's first decisions in the production of a vegetable crop is the number of acres to be planted. How many pounds (ounces, grams) of seed should be planted on each acre depends on (1) the desired number of plants per acre (plant population), which depends on the spatial arrangement (within-row and between-row spacing) of the plants, (2) the number of seed per pound, (3) the percent germination and (4) planting precision.
