Seed rate

Aim for a plant population of about 102,000 ha (41,000 acre). With a 10% establishment loss this requires a seed rate of about 113,000 ha (46,000 acre). If you have a poor seed bed or are drilling early push the seed rate up.

ES Capris is certainly a variety that needs considering - if you need more information please phone the office on 01948 661602 or your usual agent.
