Seeding rate and harvest population

Seeding rate and harvest population
The relationship between seeding rate and harvest population. Ideally, we would like to have every seed planted be present at harvest; this would signify a 1:1 ratio. Most hybrids have a 95 percent germination rate, which means that each seeding rate should parallel the 1:1 line, except that it would be slightly below it. As the seeding rate increases though, the final populations start to drag down from the 1:1 line.
