PLANTING RATES FOR BRUSH-TYPE SEED METERS (STANDARD DRIVE)

APPROXIMATE HILLS/HECTARE FOR VARIOUS ROW WIDTHS

Due to variations in cotton seed size, meters equipped with 12 cell acid-delinted hill-drop cotton discs plant from 3 to
6 seeds per cell. Select proper disc for seed size range to be planted.
To determine planter transmission setting,

determine desired hill spacing and select the transmission ratio closest to the hill

spacing in centimeters on the chart. To decrease population increase spacing. To increase population decrease spacing.
To determine population per hectare,

determine average seeds per hill and hills per acre by doing a field check. Measure

1∕1000

of an hectare (1/1000 hectare = Length of row 13.12 cm for 70 cm row widths). Multiply average seeds per hill by

hills per hectare. EXAMPLE: 4 seeds per hill x (13 hills x 1000) = 52,000
