RATES OF SEEDING

THE INCREASED COST OF SEEDING AFTER WORLD WAR II HAS LED MANY STATES TO EXPERIMENT WITH LEANER MIXTURES OF VARIOUS TYPES. IN 1954 AND 1955 MOST SEEDING PROJECTS IN THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES EMPLOYED RATES OF 40--170 LB PER ACRE. CONNECTICUT IN 1955 EXPERIMENTED WITH RATES OF 10--70 LB PER ACRE IN 10-LB INCREMENTS. ALL EXPERIMENTAL PLOTS WERE FERTILIZED WITH 1200 LB PER ACRE OF 5-8-7. ALL SECTIONS SEEDED WITH THE 10-LB MIXTURE PRODUCED GOOD STANDS OF GRASS, BUT THE MOST FAVORABLE RESULTS WERE OBTAINED WITH A 40-LB MIX.
