Author: Schubert, Gilbert H.; Fowells, Harry A.

Date: 1964

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-044. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 9 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-44

Description: Presents guides to determine the number of seeds to sow per spot and the number of spots required per acre to obtain acceptable stocking. Based on theoretical probabilities, these guides were found to be reasonably close to actual field results When the probability-of-success was at least 55 percent. To compensate for lower actual stocking, increase the number of spots per acre rather than sow more seeds per spot.
