Few things are more frustrating in farming than trying to plant and not getting the right amount of out of the planter.  There is a way to calculate how much seed is being planted to calibrate the settings.  I know it is not quite time to plant cool-season forages and small grains, but with saturated fields, this might be a good project for the week ahead.  Tim Hambrick Area Agronomy Agent, North Carolina, provides three steps to calibrate your grain drill in this week’s featured video.  In the video, Tim uses an equation used to do the math that is also provided in the accompanying article: Do You Know How to “Control the Spill” of Your Drill?
