Glossary

Definition Explanation
Plant Densities Generally higher in areas with above average moisture, lower in areas of limited rainfall. Studies indicate higher plant density combined with a maximum agronomic package, increases yields.
1,000 Kernel Weight Measurement of one thousand kernels of that specific seed seed lot.
Germination Viable seeds out of 100 on a % basis.
Emergence Mortality Can be caused by disease, insects, excessive fertilizer in seedrow, improper seeding depth, frost etc.
