This worksheet is available in an excel spreadsheet file format only.

The Drill Calibration Worksheet is designed to compute the target seeding rates for drills and planters. The user inputs the parameters for their equipment along with the seed information. The spreadsheet calculates the target seed quantities for the calibration conditions specified. Data generated during the calibration can be entered into the spreadsheet to obtain the actual seeding rate for a tested setting.
