I usually seed a KBG/Per Rye mix with my Turfco slice seeder BUT I can tell you the chart is WAY, WAY off on rates. Probably will be for you too. You will likely need to dial the gap way down from the chart to be accurate.

For example, I like to run 5-6 lbs/K for slice overseed jobs (existing turf). Most of the time I do 1/2 rate with passes at an angle to each other. I usually have to run my seeder at a '2' setting to get the right rate. Full rate seeding I am at a 3-4. Seed chart says like an 8 or 10 or something. Just way off.
