Anyone know the # of seeds per pound of Arrow Green Screen? It says to sow at 8-12lbs/acre, but I need to know the seeds/lb to be able to convert it into seeds/acre to allow me to set the transmission on my planter.

Normal sorghum is about 20-22k/lb, wasn't sure if it was much different or not.
Depending on the type of Sweet Sorghum Seed but it range is 20,000 to 30,000 seed per pound
This is drilling not broadcast
Sweet Sorghum seeding rate (pounds per acre) determined for 70 percent seedling emergence
Seeding rates denoted by shading reflect populations between 30,000 – 40,000 plants per acre. Populations within these ranges are generally considered optimum in most applications. Approximate number of seed per pound:  Dale: 30000  M81-E: 24000  Theis: 21000  Top 76-6: 20000
