What DA and Forplease said. The settings on the LS-22 are calculated settings. Seed changes so much there is no way to be accurate on settings. They are there to get you close. For best results know how much seed you will need and plan to do the seeding in two passes at 45 degrees to each other. After the first full pass you check your seed left. More than half cut the rate for the second pass it it is less than half then open the setting. This theory works on all seeders.
